SYNOPSIS

In New York City, LGBTQ youth-of-color gather out on the Christopher Street Pier, practicing a performance-based artform, Ballroom, which was made famous in the early 1990s by Madonna's music video "Vogue" and the documentary "Paris Is Burning." Twenty-five years after these cultural touchstones, a new and very different generation of LGBTQ youth have formed an artistic activist subculture, named the Kiki Scene. We follow seven characters from the Kiki community over the course of four years, their preparations and spectacular performances, battles with homelessness, illness and prejudice as well as their gains towards political influence and the conquering of affirming gender-expressions.
