To celebrate international Pride Month we would love to share some amazing videos celebrating LGBTQ+ culture, this time through voguing and Benjamin Milan.
Swedish choreographer and movement director Benjamin Milan leads this visual ode on the transformative power of dance. “This film is about my journey in the ballroom scene,” says Milan. “This is about how voguing helped me accept myself and find a community that welcomed and understood me for who I am.”
As a father of the House of Milan in the UK, the dancer highlights the importance for LGBTQ+ groups, people of color and other marginalized communities to not just find a scene, but a home. Featuring rapturous music from long-term Nowness contributor Gaika, New Ways is Milan’s personal odyssey, which he choreographed and conceived with director Jonas Hegi from directing duo, Jonas & Julien.
