The hit TV series Pose on FX wrapped up its final season earlier this month. The fictional show focused on the real-life legends of New York City's underground ballroom culture in the 80's and 90's.

Today we talk about the impact of the show and ballroom culture as a part of the LGBTQ community. Our guests are London Fleur de Lis Escada, a Vogue instructor who competed on the first season of HBO Max's reality-voguing competition "Legendary," and who is the New England mother of the House of Escada in Boston, and Dezyre Revlon, New England mother of the iconic House of Revlon, based in Boston.

For those looking for health resources, you can reach out to Dezyre at Codman Square Health Center.
