George Peabody Library

Join us at the stunning George Peabody Library for a free screening of the 2017 documentary KIKI, followed by a panel discussion with members of Baltimore’s ballroom community.

KIKI documents a performance-based artform, ballroom, which was made famous in the early 1990s by Madonna’s music video “Vogue” and the documentary “Paris Is Burning.” Twenty-five years later, a new generation of LGBTQ youth of color have formed an activist performance subculture called the Kiki Scene. KIKI follows seven participants in New York City over the course of four years, documenting their spectacular performances at events known as Kiki balls and their political organizing around homelessness and HIV prevention.
