WEPRESENT SHOWCASES MYLES LOFTIN’S HOUSE OF LABEIJA PORTRAIT SERIES
“The venerable House of LaBeija, widely considered to be the world’s first ballroom house, has long been a respected institution within New York’s Black queer community. And today, thanks to shows like “RuPaul’s Drag Race” and “Legendary,” it’s a world-renowned creative force. After being initiated into their ranks, photographer Myles Loftin set out to capture the faces of the House’s New York chapter in all their glory. He speaks with writer Alim Kheraj about some of his favorite images, and explains the necessity of archiving Black queer life and joy.”
So begins an insightful feature on Myles and his ongoing portrait series “True Beauties” published by WeTransfer’s WePresent. Read and see more here: https://wepresent.wetransfer.com/stories/myles-loftin-house-of-labeija
