- Personal story
Hi! My name is Melody, and I am a part of Venopi. I identify as she/her and am a proud #ally of the LGBTQIA+ community. I heard many struggling stories from the LGBTQIA+ community. How some families choose not to accept them and how they have to deal with hatred from the people around them. Most people don't even know them personally, and violence is not uncommon.
I heard about Voguing but wasn't aware of how significantly it helps the LGBTQIA+ community. I naively thought it was a dance expression, inspired by the LGBTQIA+ community and made famous by Madonna. Curious to understand more bout it, I talked with Isabell, who has been part of the Voguing community and used to belong to the House of Revlon.
