With an high violent crime rate and homeless population, Detroit has been called "one of the most dangerous places for LGBTQ youth in America" -- yet despite this, there's still a vibrant vogueing community thriving in the deserted back alleys and abandoned warehouses of Motown, which is precisely what filmmaker Mollie Mills found. Centering her Dazed short doc "Vogue, Detroit" on one Ruth Ellis Centre, an organization that looks after homeless, runaway and at-risk youth, Mills manages to capture a tender portrait of a resilient community dogged by fear, bigotry and abuse, and shows how they manage to rise above it all through dance. Watch the film in full below.
