House of Suarez + Contact: Vogue Ball 2022

House of Suarez’s legendary annual Vogue Ball is returning to Manchester with a 2022 theme of Night at the Poseum, with performances inspired by treasures from around the globe currently on display in museums throughout the North West.

The ball will once again be steered by Captain Rikki Beadle-Blair as Master of Ceremonies. Expect an extravaganza of costume, dance, and high drama as Houses from across the UK come together to compete for catwalk supremacy in categories such as Fantasy, Solo, Lip Synch, Sex Siren and Choreography.

Dubbed club culture meets high art, the Vogue Ball has become a key annual event in Queer Contact and is inspired by the legendary balls held in New York City from the 1970s, which provided a platform for young Black and Latinx LBGTQ+ people to showcase their flamboyant and competitive personalities.

This event is part of Queer Contact. Each February, as part of LGBT History Month, Queer Contact’s programming converges in a festival of events – Queer Contact Festival – featuring the best performance, music, spoken word, dance, theatre and visual art with local young people and performers interacting with the best UK and international talent.
