Well even I didn't see this one coming. MTV is about to break ground again by including the first openly gay and transgender dance crew on the new season of Randy Jackson's America's Best Dance Crew.
Vogue Evolution hails from New York City and is comprised of a fierce team of black and latino voguers who honed their craft on the ballroom floor. Now they're poised to take their authentic brand of vogueing to the masses when they compete for the title of America's Best Dance Crew. Make sure your DVR is set for the premiere of America's Best Dance Crew when it premieres on August 9.
MTV has already announced the nine crews who will be competing for the title and when describing Vogue Evolution this is what the network had to say; "Vogue Evolution are out, proud and determined to live their lives the way they want to. Their distinctive “vogue” style of dance mixed with hip hop makes this crew unique, along with working to educate others on AIDS/HIV awareness."
Having been apart of the professional dance world in Los Angeles, and knowing all of the ABDC judges personally, I have no doubt that Vogue Evolution will encounter it's share of homophobic critiques, but this is HUGE in my opinion and I'm too excited to worry about that right now.
