In the black LGBTQ community in New York, kiki’s are very popular balls where fierce voguing competitions – a modern dance with body movements defined by lines and poses – take place. This documentary delves into the fascinating world of New York’s queer scene making use of dance competition footage and interviews with energetic young people who use terms like “heteronormativity” and “gender deconstruction” in a striking manner. Twenty-five years after the classic “Paris is Burning”, Kiki sheds light at the glaring changes this scenario has undergone.
