Review :

Ryan Murphy introduces us to a tv show featuring ball culture and those that founded it. Sometimes real, sometimes fiction, it follows nuanced, touching and surprisingly colourful characters. Ryan Murphy tackles difficult realities facing LGBTQA in the 80s and 90s – AIDS, financial crisis, poverty, discrimination, violence, prostitution- while paying homage to classic queer cinema, Paris is Burning (1990) among others.
