Don’t cut me, but I can’t stand this show: America’s Best Dance Crew. Usually I can watch anything (vh1) but not this. I missed all the past seasons, and never really got excited about Jaberwokee(?). Randy Jackson just doesn’t do it for me. Perhaps it’s because I was home… it was a Sunday, and I had already seen that episode of Law and Order: CI, but I ended up on MTV when ABDC came on.
I’d seen clips about Vogue Revolution making their rounds through the blogs, but seeing them in action, was quite an event. Coupled with some homophobes sitting in the room with me, their performance caused quite an uproar.
Vogue Evolution is a dance crew from NYC made up of four homosexual men and one transgender. Together they wanted to bring the “Vogue” house/ballroom scene to the mainstream. Beyonce, in “Single Ladies”, had parts of it in her video. It was cool to watch. I’m always for gay pride breaking boundaries. Either way, I still hate the show. Can’t stand Mario Lopez and Lil Mama always keeps me entertained. Your thoughts?
As usual, I like to refer what I have seen to UVa. I wanna bring up the question of the Black Gay Population. Years and years ago, during my first year, I wrote an article on the UVa Black Gay Community and how homophobic the black community here was. I talked to many Black LGBTQ members, who told me their experiences here, and it was quite disturbing. Well, its been 2.5 years since, and I wonder how everyone feels about the black gay community at UVa today. It is obviously very undercover, but I do know that it’s so small that they all tend to know each other. In my opinion, black men are the ones who tend to be the most homophobic.
Well, you can be anonymous in the comments section, so let me know what you think: What’s the status of the black gay community? correction: How do people now feel about the black LGBTQ community at the University?
