Story

BU Wellness Network is honoring The House & Ball Community and all of its efforts in Ending The HIV Epidemic.

The House and Ball Community (aka the ballroom scene) is a national subculture of Black and Latinx LGBTQ youth and adults. Evolving from Harlem drag balls throughout the Harlem Renaissance (1920s), the House and Ball Community provides a platform, which celebrates all forms of gender and sexual expression. The HBC also provides many queer youth and adults with a chosen kinship structure through which collective impact, resiliency, and vital resources are obtained. Balls are extravagant and competitive social events co-organized by houses in the community. During balls, houses compete in a variety of artistic categories towards the goal of visibility and cultural production. Ballroom has always been a Mecca for HIV Prevention and Education as well as a safe haven for those living with HIV to go and express themselves artistically without the judgment of the outside world.

This event series raises awareness and support for BU Wellness Network's impactful programs and features a virtual ball with judges from all over the world!
