Event description

Description

What started out as a small community project has grown into a monumental event for underground ballroom culture in Pittsburgh. On Saturday, April 20, 2019 the underground Ballroom community will venture into the Southside of Pittsburgh, ClearStory Studios for the5th Annual Galaxy Ball presented by True T Pittsburgh.

Unlike traditional balls, Galaxy serves the underground LGBTQ ballroom community and brings it mainstream for all to enjoy. Pittsburgh Post Gazette

The Annual Galaxy Ball series celebrates the Ballroom Community, a black and brown LGBT underground sub-culture that for decades has been popularized by some of your favorite celebrities (example(s): Madonna, Queen Beyonce', and Tamar Braxton). Since 2012 the annual Galaxy Ball series has invested more than $50,000.00 into the local Ballroom community of Pittsburgh.

We welcome you to “The Galaxy”, an annual unconventional performance series told through an original fictional story. The event celebrates the Ballroom Community, a black and brown LGBT underground sub-culture that has now made its way to primetime television with the new hit series POSE on FX. Best described as a hyper-queer extravaganza, the Galaxy Ball continues to bring underground Ballroom culture and HIV/AIDS awareness to the forefront. This interactive event evokes high energy alongside theatrical movements where the most creative come together for one night only, battling for trophies, cash prizes, bragging rights, and fun.
