Paris is Burning (1990)

This film documents the Black and Latino gay and transgender community and the ball culture in New York City in the mid to late 1980s. The film highlights several veteran drag queens, as well as rookies to the scene. This film is a testament to how we use clothing to identify and place ourselves in society.

The whole film is on youtube in parts. Definitely a must see if you haven't already. I am really drawn to and inspired by how fashion and ways of dressing are talked about in the film.
