Abstract
Icon Peanut Revlon talks about his entrance into Baltimore’s ballroom scene as a teenager at Club Bunns, the chosen family relationships he formed in the ballroom community, and why ballroom is important to him as a form of personal and creative expression. He describes the proceedings of a typical ball competition and explains the history and development of ballroom culture in the United States. This oral history was recorded as part of the Peabody Ballroom Experience, a public humanities collaboration between Johns Hopkins University and the performance-based culture known as ballroom.
