Event description
Presented to you by Te Puna Manawa HealthWEST's YOUTH HEALTH HUB & the KELSTON KWEENZ! In Sponsorship with Zeal West and Ara Taiohi

About this Event

The Youth Health Hub (community health provider for rangatahi/youth) are very excited to be collaborating with West Auckland's 'Kelston Kweenz' to bring forth a first-ever YOUTH VOGUE BALL, in celebration of Youth Week 2021.

KWEENZ ACADEMY OF VOGUE - A title once used by former Kelston Kweenz over a decade ago for a school talent quest performance. Voguing has elevated into a mainstream phenomenon, and the girls (both past and present), wish to bring voguing back into the community scene for the little ones still in school to strut what they got.

In support of Youth Week (May 8—16), this Youth Vogue Ball aims to provide a safe space for many of our younger transgender, non-binary and queer youth. We want them to feel that they can be included in events during Youth Week, focusing on celebrating them as diverse youth of today, as well as for them to feel included and welcomed into the wider Auckland Vogue family.

CATEGORIES

Runway - "Paper Bag Princess/Second-hand Realness"

Virgin Vogue - "Nurse Ratched"

Body - "Active Wear" with a cute exercise drill

O.T.A Vogue - "The Library is Open"

Cash prizes kindly sponsored by our venue partner ZEAL West!

As this is a Youth-friendly and community event open to all ages, nudity will be prohibited which is why the theme for the Body category has been carefully considered. Walkers are encouraged to be creative but resourceful in their looks. Hint: Performance factor is KEY i.e. Runway - Catwalk to the beat // Body - Give us a Squat // Virgin & OTA - Spins, Dips, Hands, Floor performance, Duckwalks, Hair... elements!

DOORS OPEN 6PM // STARTS 6.30PM // ENDS 9.30PM

NON-ALCOHOL & SMOKE-FREE EVENT
