The FAFSWAG BALL© is a competitive showcase in which registered houses (groups of 5-7 members) compete in a series of performative categories for trophies, sponsored spot prizes and a Grand Cash Prize of $1000 dollars.

Modeled after the underground Harlem Ball scene of the 1940’s, popularised more prolifically in New York City in the early 1980’s. A ‘Ball’ is a live event in which urban ethnic minority groups and queer subcultures showcase their creative talents across a diverse spectrum of competitive genres such as performance, dance and runway fashion.

If you’re an attention seeker looking to capture the crowds applause with your fierce show stopping swag, then assemble your house of divas and lets take it to the ballroom floor.

We want to see your epic vogue drops, your flawless custom design and your Bossiest runway strut – this is your chance to get your walk on.

The FAFSWAG BALL is a fast-paced night of entertainment with some good old-fashioned competitive flare. A judging panel of creative industry professionals and an MC with a taste for drama and spectacle come together in search of the HOUSE with the most swag. If you want to be crowned Legends then bring your best SHADE to the 2013 FAFSWAG BALL.

Hosted in South Auckland the FAFSWAG BALL is the first of it’s kind, presented in partnership with Manukau Faculty of Creative Arts M.I.T and The Otara Community Board. This event allows diverse Pacific LGBTI and the broader SouthSide community to come together to celebrate unique difference in a cool and creative way.
