Birmingham’s Nightingale Club will tonight (Thursday 7 November) host the screening of a movie that’s been described as ‘Paris Fashion Week on crack!’.


Being shown at the Gale as part of SHOUT Festival, Deep In Vogue celebrates the colourful, queer, emotional and political stories of Northern Vogue and its people. 

Synonymous with the black, gay ballrooms of 1980s New York, this documentary asks why we need Vogue culture now more than ever. The British Film Institue describes the movie as: ‘An intimate look at the ways that working-class northern culture blends into the proud nature of vogue as an art form… Deep In Vogue emphasises that art is not solely the arena of the middle classes; in the ballroom, your wealth is in your talent alone.’ 


Commenting on the film, SHOUT Festival says: This new documentary digs into issues like disenfranchisement of black youth, transphobia, a shrinking welfare state and the commercialisation of the gay scene. As SHOUT hosts Birmingham’s first Vogue Ball this year, we had to bring it to the festival not just to celebrate vogue culture but to highlight why it’s still so important to queer communities today.
