Saturday night marked the 22nd annual House of Latex Ball, presented at “New York’s largest ballroom facility,” the Roseland Ballroom. Each year, Gay Men’s Health Crisis (GMHC) brings together hundreds of spectators and ball culture participants in the name of health education to celebrate an underground culture of dance, fashion and professional fierceness. Most important, the legendary event creates awareness to the still vital conversation around HIV and AIDS.
