Vogue-Chi encourages its participants to fully find new versions of themselves whilst exploring unconventional beauty and shameless self indulgence in a loving and safe environment. It offers a gentle work out for the soul and a good ol’ stretch for the mind.
Vogue-Chi facilitates a spectrum of spiritual principles historically developed by LGBTQI+ people to engage positively in life and overcome institutionalised oppression, invisibilization and abuse.
Vogue-Chi was created in Margate for people aged 50+ by artists/dancers Ted Rogers & Carlos (Atabey) Maria Romero. With initial support by Ageless Thanet, a constant backing of Turner Contemporary, and more recently from Margate Pride, the sessions ran locally with huge success since February 2016. Vogue-Chi is now open to all, it is offered to school teachers and LGBTQ+ young persons, and starts in London in October.
