At times intimate and raw, Paris is Burning tries to capture the powerful essence of walking the floor to thunderous cheers and sometimes boos.

Paris Is Burning has persisted all these years in part due to the charisma of lines like these—sharp, complex, a life’s worth of wisdom packed into a few punchy sentences—and in part due to the substance of the wisdom itself.

Livingston creates an after-life for the queer icons of the New York ball scene. She builds a memorial to lives to whom (to quote Marsha P. Johnson) nobody promised a tomorrow; she created a legacy of their todays for the people of tomorrow to honor.
