This exhibit is conceived as a snapshot of the complexion, interests, and activities of a diverse group of queer and allied artists. This issue is on stands now. 📸 @mariedenise with beautiful words by @joysewing 📝

🗣ALL RACES👏🏾ALL AGES👏🏾ALL GENDERS👏🏾 I got my ENTIRE life riding in the NYC #worldpride parade. 10 years ago I moved to Houston to pursue a career in ballet and somehow trying to master pas de deux turned into mastering pumps as well, and I’ve been on a journey of self discovery and self love that has led to this exact moment. It was an honor to be led by @peppermint247 @carlisha_gizelle & @theartofbradley our fearless @maccosmetics MUVAS riding alongside people like @parkerkithill @conor_mckenzie & @bennydrama7 who represent the power of chosen family!! I will never forget this moment! Keep dancing and keep being fearless! 💓💋 Ps don’t clock the double tour scars 😅

Another season with @houstonballet in the books! This season has brought me all over the world, allowed me to tackle new roles, and push the limits of what I think I can do and who I can become onstage. It’s truly special, sometimes painful, but immensely rewarding being a professional ballet dancer and I’m continuously grateful for every experience. Congratulations fam, I can’t wait to not see you for 4 weeks🤪

theharperwatters

Please welcome to the stage, my pride campaign with @poloralphlauren!!! 🧡🕺🏾🌈 This campaign has taught me that the most important role I’ll ever dance is myself, on the biggest stage there is, my life. I stand here today on the shoulders of those who danced through adversity before me and also on one foot with a leg as high as my expectations for the future! Own your truth, be unapologetic with your individuality, and honey TURN👏🏾IT👏🏾OUT👏🏾!! #RLPRIDE #Loveislive #Pride

A lot of incredible moments happened for me this #BlackHistoryMonth, and will continue to happen, for myself, and also those on similar paths. One of those things was wearing this @kenneth.nicholson piece, but also there was the continued support from this icon of a woman. @laurenandersonofficial is the definition of #BlackHistory. The first African American principal dancer of a major ballet company and the main persuader of my parents for getting my twirling butt down to Houston. Thank you for all that you are and it’s about damn time we do a heel collab! Love you🖤💪🏾 #houstonballet

theharperwatters

As dancers for @houstonballet, we are proud to be part of an organization that played a major role in Black History. The @target #BlackHistoryMonth collection celebrates the past and emphasizes the important message that “Love Unites Us All”. We will continue to celebrate those who danced through adversity before us and show our love of dance while opening more doors for the future. 🖤 @kellenhornbuckle @naazirmuhammad 📸 @kennethbedwards #target #targettag @targettag

was going to post an emotional quote with this but I don’t want @balletmoods to drag me 😏

theharperwatters

“In the summer before my sophomore year, I came out to my parents. I was watching America’s Next Top Model and I saw myself in Miss J, the runway coach. I walked downstairs, sort of impulsively honestly, and I said, “Mom Dad can I tell you something?” The feelings I felt after I told them could only be described as the part in Beyonce’s "Hold Up." - @outmagazine ✏️ @willahbennett 📸 @jasperegan 👗 @willyumbeck 💄@meghannguy

theharperwatters

I’ve posted and deleted about 10 posts already because I can’t decide what to share of this LEWK!! @kenneth.nicholson you made me feel like STAR 🌟💚🙏🏾

theharperwatters

did someone say @kenneth.nicholson for the @houstonballet ballet ball? Oh that’s right....I did☝🏾

theharperwatters

“As an African American out and proud classical ballet dancer, I am WELL aware of the privilege I have of simply just writing that last sentence. Every time I step onstage, I carry with me the legacy of who came before me. I’ll never forget being forced by my parents to turn off an episode of the Real World to watch a New York City Ballet broadcast on tv. There I was thinking drama only existed on MTV but when Albert Evans took the stage I was so captivated by his performance. He had power, sass, strength, and confidence. I was so determined to be him one day. Dancers like @lsweaters and @desmondrich7 taught me to not try and fit into a box, to not try and be someone else, but to embrace my uniqueness, capabilities, and potential. These men paved the way for me and gave me hope as a little boy sashaying around his room dreaming of being a dancer.” - @gaytimesmag shot by @maxwellpoth 🖤 Happy #BlackHistoryMonth ✊🏾 Dancers: Arthur Mitchell, Albert Evans, Matthew Rushing, Clifton Brown, Desmond Richardson, Craig Hall
