Dancing for Freedom in the Middle East

In Lebanon, a country where the LGBTQ community still faces extreme discrimination, a scene is emerging that gives everyone a safe space to celebrate and express themselves. It’s voguing, a dance form created for and by people of color within the LGBTQ community in New York City in the 1980s. Now, dancers like Hoedy Saad are continuing the tradition in the Middle East. In the face of adversity, he continues to dance, building a vogue scene in Lebanon that gives everyone the space to feel free.
