Working with @juliobyme on #CongoCabaret

#Dancer Julio Marcelino (@juliobyme) came onto the project as a last-minute replacement, but his high-spirited and flamboyant dancing, moving to the #choreography of Reina Hildago (#reinahildago521), perfectly embodied the character of the #Pansy Dancer created by #ClaudeMcKay back in 1928. Julio’s BTS video garnered thousands of hits and views when it was posted online, by far the most viewed and popular. Reminds us that there is a place for the fabulous even in the serious endeavor of educating the public about the #queerHarlemrRenaissance.
