Michael Roberson is a Ballroom icon, queer theologian and public health activist from New York City. This workshop will draw on the theories and radical practices of African-American feminists and Womanist theologians, in order to collectively analyse the body techniques and performative strategies that allow the House/Ballroom culture, originated in Harlem, New York, to confront the AIDS crisis and to dismantle the configurations of oppression formed when racism, sexism, poverty and other forms of discrimination intersect.
