When Paris is Burning came out I was just a kid in the local choir in my church in New Orleans. I remember how much I loved everything about it — the characters, the costumes, the music. I couldn’t believe there were gay Black and Latino men being portrayed like that on screen. It meant a lot to me and in many ways inspired me to do something different and follow my dream, no matter what others said.

Read how the music and fashion of Paris is Burning, now available on Netflix streaming and iTunes, affected Big Freedia and others influenced by the late ’80s/early ’90s ball scene
