The Pose TV-series is a fictional story about a curious subculture that was born in New York in the 1980s when the United States was still a very homophobic country.

At that time, many representatives of the LGBT community, who were not accepted by relatives, friends, colleagues, themselves created their own families, which they called ‘houses’.

At the house, under the leadership of mothers (the heads of these families), they had semi-underground parties (balls). At these balls, representatives of the houses competed among themselves in musical performances, one of the elements of which was an imitation of the model poses from the covers of fashion magazines. This is what gave the name to the series.

The plot of Pose is centered on Blanca, a trans woman, the mother of the House of the Evangelist created by her. She helps her family, including model Angel and dancers Lil Papi and Damon.

The second season of Pose is inspired by Madonna’s song Vogue, which popularized dance moves from balls. The world is raving about a new dance, and the culture of balls is slowly emerging from the underground.
