Dancers Turn SEPTA Into a “Voguing Train”

Local dancer and choreographer—and one of our LGBT Six-Word memoirists—Kemar Jewel just tweeted us this fab video of him and some fellow dancers voguing all over SEPTA.

He starts at Walnut and Locust on the Broad Street Line and manages to vogue all over town—in the train cars, in subway corridors, on steps—everywhere. He tells me they shot at noon one day, but somehow he managed to film it without having any passengers in the way. “Just know it was a lot of planning, patience, and prayer.”


In a statement to Huffington Post, he says he did the video to show that "anywhere can be a performance area. ... I am a member of Philadelphia's Black Gay Ballroom Scene and I wanted to showcase all of its creativity and talent. Also, since voguing and the Ballroom Scene is an 'underground scene,' why not put it underground, literally!"
