"I've been voguing for 11 years, but I didn't have an inkling of it until I started. It was very underground. You basically didn't even see the dance in mainstream clubs, because once people figured out where it came from, then they automatically assumed that if you're doing this dance, then you must be. And the majority of kids at that time didn't want to come out. I was in the closet then, but I was like, 'Hey, this is great, this is a new dance form.' And once I had it down pat, I was doing it everywhere."Willi Ninja, uma figura lendária do meio artístico nova-iorquino, protagonista do filme Paris is Burning e um dos percursores do estilo de dança celebrizado por Madonna, faleceu dia 2 aos 45 anos.
