When Jennie Livingston's film Paris Is Burning arrived in cinemas in 1990, the mainstream got hip to New York City's extraordinary ball culture. Paris Is Burning documented a gay ballroom scene that emerged in Harlem in the mid-1980s, which drew African American and Latino gay and transgender communities to compete against one another for their dancing and runway skills. 

Photographer Chantal Regnault spent many years recording this scene, from which the dance style known as voguing arose. Voguing and the Ballroom Scene of New York 1989–1992 is an extraordinary document on sexuality, race, dancing, and New York culture. The book features unseen photos, interviews with key figures from the movement, essays, flyers and ephemera!
