Gay/Trans Dance Crew, Vogue Evolution, Brings it to ‘America’s Best Dance Crew’

Share

I just watched Vogue Evolution compete on MTV’s ‘America’s Best Dance Crew’. I was inspired by the fact that the crew challenged some long held stereotypes about what it means to be a hip-hop dancer. The crew represented by being the first openly gay group to perform on the show. Voguing has been forced underground (and into the closet) since Madonna celebrated it in the late 80s.

But is America ready for a vogue revolution?

In addition to having one transgender member, the crew proved that you don’t have to be skinny to be a dancer. Just like the mic, you can rock the stage at any size.
