Latex Ball 2009: Vegas Fab!
This past Saturday, all the Ballroom Houses in NYC came out to the 19th Annual Latex Ball at the famous, fabulous Roseland Ballroom. This unforgettable event, produced by Gay Men's Health Crisis, was a spectacular success. The House Of Latex Project was created by GMHC to address the growing issue of HIV/AIDS within the ballroom community. Using the Latex Ball as a vehicle for prevention/education efforts, GMHC offered educational tabling and on-site HIV testing at the Roseland during the Ball.
As the videos below demonstrate, positive, creative ways to help our LGBT community stay safe and play safe are at once effective and encouraging. Kudos to all who worked so hard to make this yearly extravaganza a blast!
Baron never fails to please the crowd!

There were 24 Ballroom Houses competing in the Latex Ball, and all of them scorched that runway with their own fierce inner fire! Can't wait for next year!
