ROCHESTER

Vogue Rochester was created as a way to provide more safe spaces for the Black Queer & LGBT community. Community members are able to engage in friendly competition with one another in a variety of different categories for cash prizes and then dance to their favorite music. Accompanied by 2 DJs, a commentator, musical performances, and special guests, this event has quickly become a community favorite that draws hundreds of people from across the region.
