“Vienna Is Burning” Sets the City on Fire
On March 19, 2022, the city of Vienna witnessed world class extravaganza at the Vienna is Burning Ball. Co-organized by Eat Slay Love Vienna and Queens Brunch, the Ball provided a platform for people to showcase their creativity, fashion, and gender expression in the grand tradition of New York City’s ballroom culture. A panel of esteemed judges Ashanti Ninja , Kenjii Benjii, LaQuèfa 007, Naïmah 007 & Nunoy Revlon were invited to award cash prizes and trophies to participants in sickening categories such as “All-American: Met Gala in a Skirt”, “Best Dressed Spectator: A Star is Born”, “Soft And Cunt: The Snake Pit”, “Sex Siren: Wet & Wild Lingerie”, “Hair & Nails Affair: X-TRAVA-GANZA!”, and many more.
In fact, the Ball festivities began even before the actual event itself as some of the judges also led free voguing workshops to get everyone excited for the Ball.
Villa Vida is proud to have sponsored the “Vienna Is Burning” Ball and to help create a space that celebrates queer artistry and honors the legacy of Ballroom culture that originated in New York City’s black and brown queer communities.
