Though nonprofit organizations such as Metro Manila Pride are dedicated to providing safe spaces for queer folks in the the city, the LGBTQ+ community is still often the victim of targeted attacks. Trans women, in particular, face violence in staggering numbers. According to The Fuller Project, at least 50 transgender or nonbinary individuals have been murdered across the Philippines since 2010, and there are currently no legislations that would protect LGBTQ+ individuals from discrimination. “Gender-based violence remains rampant in Manila,” says Villanueva. “The sense of belonging and being part of the community helps in raising awareness and support for queer people that have experienced gender discrimination and harassment.”
These events are especially important to offer in Manila, given the LGTBQ+ community still faces prejudice in the Philippines. Currently, the country’s Supreme Court still has a ban on gay marriage, and there are little to no legislations that protect LGBTQ+ people from discrimination, especially queer youth. “The Rainbow Ball is not just a competition. It’s a safe space for the LGBTQIA+ community to be free—free of judgment, free of limitations, free of being told what to do,” Mother Xyza says. “It is where the community can be as creative as possible, where they can truly be who they are, and where they can find their chosen family and feel loved.”
Voguing balls became popularized in the Black and Latino communities in New York City in the 1980s, though early signs of voguing occurred as early as the 1920s. During the event participants dance or “walk” in various categories, including drag queens, butch queens, or femme queens. Some participants would assume looks for competition; others simply show up as themselves. Today, many vogue balls are more generalized however, allowing dancers to take to the floor however they see fit. At the Rainbow Ball, some simply walked front to back in their bold attire, while others danced and twirled their props, like LED-lit wings. “My favorite moments [from the Rainbow Ball] were hearing people chanting and supporting their favorite competitor, and seeing international voguers walking different categories,” says Mother Xyza, adding that they had participants from the UK, Thailand, Malaysia, and more. As the look is always important at a vogue ball, the ensembles were over the top tie-dye bodysuits, neon crop tops, and rainbow-striped skirts. “[I also loved] the smiles on everyone’s faces appreciating those who are competing, and of course the loud ‘yaaaaass’ and ‘weeeerk’ I heard from all over the place.”
