Livingston's film on the drag balls of Harlem provides a window into a complex American subculture composed of Black and Latino gay men. Livingston's study co-mingles ball scenes and interviews with the subculture's "children" and veteran "mothers" who discuss the balls' joyful flamboyance as well as their more painful underpinnings.
