The Vogue and Ballroom Scene in Pittsburgh has a rich history. Reaching back to the late 1990s, local houses such as the House of Tre’zur, the House of Domination, and the House of Miyoshi laid the groundwork for a loving and competitive community, quickly gaining visibility in the national scene. 
-Harrison Apple, Pittsburgh artist and public historian

An underground ballroom series created for the millennial generation to engage in friendly competition for trophies and cash prizes. Vogue Pittsburgh focuses on the profession of Pittsburgh Ballroom Scene making connections with surrounding Ballroom regions, while creating an atmosphere of fun and good sportsmanship. 

Vogue Pittsburgh premiered in August of 2012 at multi-purpose venue 6119 PENN in East Liberty. VP was 1 of the last event series held in this historical venue before its demolition. The series developed from the lack of safe spaces for our community to gather and has become 1 of the most important events for the stability of Pittsburgh Ballroom. Season 1 ended in May of 2013 and due to gentrification we took a break because of the lack of accessible spaces for people of color. Fast forward to August of 2018, where Season 2 of VP premiered during BlackOUT Weekend 2K18. Vogue Pittsburgh mixes the old with the new. It merges the past generation of ballroom with the new kids on the block.
