Strike a Pose! 14th Annual Black and White Ball

Sat Apr 20 2019, 07:00 PM - 10:00 PM


The Western Montana LGBTQ+ Community Center is
proud to host the 14th Annual Black & White Ball - Strike a Pose!
This year's theme is inspired from 80's ball room
culture which was the building blocks for the vibrant Drag sub-culture that we
know and love today. The documentary Paris is Burning, or the FX show Pose are
fabulous examples. Still don't know what we're talking about? Think 80's
Madonna and Vogue!

And what better way to honor the ball room culture
than honoring one of the folks that brought Drag to Montana:

Miss Ophelia Bouvier!

We will be honoring this wonderful performer by
making some of the entertainment interactive! This year we want you... YES
YOU... to vogue down the catwalk to 3 different categories!

The categories are:

"Material Boy" -masculine walk

"Blurring the Lines" - gender non-binary
/ gender fluid / A little bit of everything

"Toxically Feminine" - feminine walk

So dress up in your best 80's outfit, practice
your Vogue, and join us as we celebrate diversity in Western Montana!
If competing for a trophy isn't your cup of tea,
no worries, we will have a DJ for you to get your groove on, or you can visit
our ever popular Silent Auction full of donations from local artists, businesses
and individual supporters.

The wonderful drag performers from the Imperial
Sovereign Court of the State of Montana will also be gracing us with a fabulous

Light appetizers will be served throughout the
