A voguing showcase took place at 8 p.m. Feb. 6 in the Grand Hall of the Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center. The showcase was part of SexFest, a series of on-campus educational programs focusing on sex and sexuality. 

Voguing, a dance style that combines pantomimes and fashion poses, originated in the 1980s Harlem ballroom scene. Black and Latino members of the LGBTQ community primarily formed the ball culture of New York City, which entered the mainstream after the premiere of the 1990 documentary "Paris is Burning."
