Our community fought back, with dancers posting photo after photo of gorgeous men flying through the air.

Dancing Beyond the Gender Binary | L.A. Dance Chronicle
Whether through color-specific costumes, classes separated by sex, or the "traditional" view of the roles boys and girls should play in ballet, most dance students are taught that their gender determines their role in the studio beginning in elementary school.

It was a milestone for transgender and gender-nonconforming dancers and choreographers, and Dorsey hoped it would lead to a more inclusive dance world.
