Hello everyone My name is Father Lakil Luv Ultra Omni and I'm working on
documentary on the history of the ballroom scene and I would like the history of
your house and your founder is that may be possible. Once the doc is thur and
I'm graded it will go to LOGO to be aired.
I would appreciate everyone help in this matter cause I don't want to miss
anyone's house or think I'm being shady in anyway. I start the project Monday so

you feel that can go with it.. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
In 1869 LGB&T African Americans started organizing and attending Drag Balls or Masquerades. By the early 1900's Drag houses were formed these houses included a mother and father and functioned much the way houses function today. Many people document the ball room time line starting in the 70's but it goes back way further than that.

Keeping Our Minds Supple
A lot of people feel threatened if they feel they are being asked to question their cherished beliefs or their perception of reality. Yet questioning is what keeps our minds supple and strong. Simply settling on one way of seeing things and refusing to be open to other possibilities makes the mind rigid and generally creates a restrictive and uncomfortable atmosphere. We all know someone who refuses to budge on one or more issues, and we may have our own sacred cows that could use a little prodding. Being open-minded means that we are willing to question everything, including those things we take for granted.
A willingness to question everything, even things we are sure we are right about, can shake us out of complacency and reinvigorate our minds, opening us up to understanding people and perspectives that were alien to us before. This alone is good reason to remain inquisitive, no matter how much experience we have or how old we get. In the Zen tradition, this willingness to question is known as beginner's mind, and it has a way of generating possibilities we couldn't have seen from the point of view of knowing something with certainty. The willingness to question everything doesn't necessarily mean we don't believe in anything at all, and it doesn't mean we have to question every single thing in the world every minute of the day. It just means that we are humble enough to acknowledge how little we actually know about the mysterious universe we call home.
Nearly every revolutionary change in the history of human progress came about because someone questioned some time-honored belief or tradition and in doing so revealed a new truth, a new way of doing things, or a new standard for ethical and moral behavior. Just so, a commitment to staying open and inquisitive in our own individual lives can lead us to new personal revolutions and truths, truths that we will hopefully, for the sake of our growth, remain open to questioning
