LOVE IS THE MESSAGE
The Ballroom Community?
The Ballroom Community or the Ballroom Scene is a resilient and self-supportive community with its roots dating back to the Harlem Renaissance Era. As a subculture of the Black and Latinx NYC LGBT community, it was birthed out of a need for resilience, togetherness, creativity, and self-expression. To many, the Ballroom Community is a place of refuge and support. The Ballroom Community consists of Houses, elaborate Ball events, a Commentator, a Disc Jockey (DJ), and participants. More importantly, the Ballroom Community has influenced American pop culture while planting seeds around the world and empowering the rise of LGBTQ communities worldwide.
FREE CRYSTAL METH TRAINING
Ballroom, We Care Inc. conducts 3-hour interactive, virtual and in-person, free Crystal Meth training for the community. We encourage organizations and agencies that provide services to the Ballroom community to take this training. We highly encourage members of the Ballroom Community to take the training to not only learn about Meth use, but to equip themselves with the tools and knowledge needed to respond to a member of the community who may be struggling with meth use.
