About

A Home Called Vogue is the latest documentary film by Yazeed Kamaldien. It focuses on the ballroom scene, a safe space for people who otherwise face discrimination for being 'different'.


Interviews with the film's main characters were conducted in Cape Town, New York and Los Angeles. Participants and protagonists in the ballroom community speak about why they organise balls and teach the scene's famous dance styles such as Vogue. This dance style gained widespread popularity with singer Madonna's song Vogue. Among the characters in this film is Luis Camacho, a Vogue dancer who appeared in this music video.


Also featured in the film is Slim Xtravaganza, one of the actors in the famous Netflix TV series POSE. And there's Kirvan Fortuin, a South African dancer and choreographer from Macassar in the Western Cape who was murdered in June 2020.
