We know that you saw Paris Is Burning before it hit Netflix, but here’s a good chance to introduce an uninitiated pal to NYC’s competitive-voguing subculture. Spend your Sunday celebrating the ballroom scene at Respect the Runway: The Red Carpet to Mastery. Established houses (or teams) such as Mizrahi, Ninja and Xtravaganza send fierce, costumed “masters” to walk in ten categories, including Butch Queen Sex Siren, Female Figure Best Dressed and Fem Queen Face. A panel of ballroom royalty will break down the styles, critiquing the creativity and execution of each before crowning a winner.
