The House of Diabolique is the survey for dance music with an amazing archive of ball culture classics.
It is wonderful that this music, which is inextricably linked to its culture, has been preserved. It is also important to have another source to reference other than Paris is Burning, and its sequel How Do I Look, and dare I say it, Madonna's Vogue.
Many of the people who are a part of this world have nothing other than the flamboyant selves that they create against, in some cases, harrowing odds. This artistic expression (some say subculture) helped to form part of my aesthetic. It has given it an attitude and is still an inspiration - as courage often is.
