I was living in lower Manhattan at the time, and this performance of Vogue just ripped through gay and House culture there.

Took the scene by storm, transfixed people young and old. I remember standing in the big room at the 13th Street LGBT community center in Greenwich Village, watching one gay or trans person after another taking the floor with their own informal homage.

I don’t know what it is about the piece that speaks to people so much, but I think it’s really cool that it spoke to a proto-gay 7 year old.

Thanks for sharing!
