The 2022 World of Red Ball

The 2022 edition of The Center’s annual World of Red Ball was hosted on World AIDS Day (December 1) at the Jean-Michel Basquiat: King Pleasure© Exhibit. The ball allowed LGBTQIA+ members of the ballroom community to gather in a safe space to reflect and celebrate those we have lost to HIV/AIDS. The ballroom scene has long offered unbridled freedom for Black and brown queer people, and we are so grateful to have witnessed the community’s glory. A strong sense of community and love filled the whole venue!
