Director Statement

From NY to London to Paris the ballroom scene became a way to express and celebrate the freedom of being who you are.

After a year of raving in the most famous Queer party in London (Pxssypalace) I started to wonder what the voguing scene meant or represented in other countries with a different mindset toward the lgbttti community . This is how I ended up in Mexico City where I met La Mendoza and started this journey through her eyes.
