More about House of Dinah: Paris is Burning Nov 26, 2016

by Erin



HOUSE OF DINAH draws inspiration from the 1990 documentary film Paris is Burning. Wikipedia sums up the film nicely: "Filmed in the mid-to-late 1980s, it chronicles the ball culture of New York City and the African-AmericanLatinogay, and transgender communities involved in it. Some critics consider the film to be an invaluable documentary of the end of the "Golden Age" of New York City drag balls, and a thoughtful exploration of race, class, gender, and sexuality in America."
