  • "Voguing is a distinctive Black/Latino gay dance form that originated in Harlem 25 years ago and which appropriates the modeling poses from fashion magazines, most notably Vogue. In this documentary profile, the dancers, who are members of rival "houses," are taped as they perform in the lively competitions that parody mainstream fashion shows. Here, contestants, boosted by boisterous cheering sections, are rated for movement, appearance and costume. The dancers are also seen at New York City's Hudson River piers where they gather to gossip and practice routines."

  • "Voguing: The Message traces the roots of this gay, black and Latino dance form, which appropriates and plays with poses and images from mainstream fashion. Footage from voguing competitions demonstrate their parody of fashion shows and how contestants are rated on the basis of movement, appearance and costume. A pre-Madonna primer, the documentary raises questions about race, sex, subcultural style and appropriation."@en
