[VOGUE CATEGORIES EXPLAINED] 

1. Virgin Vogue
Vogue is rooted in "SHADE" A safe way to "throw shade" and keep things from getting too heated. In the spirit of your first ball, we want to see your "Shadiest" ensemble. Rules: Dress for your opponents funeral. NO BLACK. It's pride bitches!

2. Old-Way
This ball proudly honors the Stonewall Riots 50th anniversary and the contributions of 2 brave trans women who "didn't take no shit from anybody" Marsha P. Henson and Sylvia Rivera. In their honor, we want your look to start a revolution. Rules: We MUST be able to tell what civil rights movement your look represents. IE Vietnam War, Stonewall Riots, Black Panther, Me Too, Black Lives Matter

3. New-Way
6 letters is not enough. LGBTQIA+ people are experiencing a profound shift in the global perception of what is means to be QUEER. Let's celebrate with a PRIDE moment shall we? Serve it up New-Way in your best LGBTQIA+ flag inspired ensemble. Rules: Must match color scheme and symbols of chosen flag. Type of flag should be discernable by glance. IE https://wp.hornet.com/stories/pride-flags-lgbt-flags/?fbclid=IwAR255Z6qi8y6F_nThunuiG4gk-DygxgNFsL9VJTAYl92FBy46GKoxte9UeI

4. Runway
Fashion can represent powerful personal liberation. Life's a ball when you can be anything you feel and exactly who you are meant to be with just one look. Whether your bag is filled with lipstick and heels, boots and a belt, or perhaps some tape and tights we want to see your most GENDER BLENDING look. Rules: Boys can be boygirls & girls can be girlboys, androgyny is sexy baby, and anything in between just might get you your 10's.

5. Vogue Femme
Sex work has worn a capital "S" for scarlet for a long time. Although there is still a lot of work to do in the way of Sex Workers rights, we have made progress in destigmatizing sex workers and what they do to simply "survive" To honor this, we want you to escort us to our room at the Moulin Rogue, Red Light District, or even the Vegas Strip. Rules: Your look must include a reveal! Tease before you please children, it's about that time for the covers to come off for the big reveal.


6. Hand Performance
Homosexual acts like kissing, holding hands, dancing together and marriage were  all still illegal in parts of the US during the time of the 1969 Stonewall era. It wasn't until June 26, 2015 after a U.S. Supreme Court decision that same-sex marriage even became legal in all 50 states. In honor of the right to marry, we want to see a fairytale wedding look fit for a bride or groom. Are you ready to give your hand away? Rules: This category is HAND PERFORMANCE NOT ARMS CONTROL... Do your homework, come correct!
