HOUSE OF PRIDE ★ BALLROOM BOUDOIR
A long, long time ago in a distant galaxy—part of the Rainbow Multiverse—there was a
queer family made up of six non-binary Queens called ‘House Of Pride’…
House of Pride, a Montréal art collective comprised of artists Jacques Besner (Jackie Jet), Martha Carter (Marta Marta), Joffrey Dumas (Frigid), Stephen Hues (LaReign), Kiet Ha and Garth Johnson (Gartina J.) – rocked Canadian stages and beyond in the ‘90s, rousing audiences with their dynamic choreographies, fabulous costumes, poignant monologues, original songs and projected visuals while delivering a hopeful message of love, unity, and peace.
House of Pride ★ Ballroom Boudoir, features photography by LaReign, taking you behind the scenes to experience the collective’s innovative work. Larger than life, gender bending, ground-breaking, outrageous, legendary, queer, feminine power!
