      This is some neat stuff. It just proves that Madonna stole from the Gay community.

      @balehead: What is more masculine than a man doing his thing, owning it and not being afraid to show it? Fierce queens are a million times more masculine than some meathead jock hiding in the closet.

      Everything old is new again. Vogue is old but it still rocks! As a matter of fact Madonna couldn’t have stolen it from the gays because it originated in the 1960′s which means she would have been four years old when she started hanging out in the clubs? NOT! But she has always loved her gays and we love her. One of the many reasons she divorced her homophobic husband.

      Origins of Vogue Femme Dance
      By Rymonda Davis, eHow Contributor

      Although Madonna’s hit song “Vogue” introduced the mainstream media to a dance form that mimicked posing and modeling, the vogue femme dance or vogueing, actually began in the 1960s in Harlem and later incorporated several styles of dance. Among many others, vogueing is mainly inspired by martial arts, modern dance, gymnastics and yoga. Through improvisation, voguing requires dancers to keep track of the beat of the music, while displaying distinct arm and head movements.

      Vogue was especially popular in the west village on christopher street and seventh ave. The guys would actually vogue on the street and stop traffic and the people would just stop and watch in awe. The good old days when christopher was alive an still happening. It even got put on the cover of “Time” magazine, voguers spread the craze by practicing their steps in downtown and discos. However, by the 1980s, vogueing focused more on movement and artistic individuality and faded out til now.
