Sad news from the ballroom community courtesy of ELIXHER.
On December 21 the House of Mizrahi suffered the untimely loss of their House Mother Bianca Baxter, known in the Ballroom world as Barbie Mizrahi.
The cause of death of the actress and model from Charlottesville, VA hasn't been confirmed, but she was a popular and well loved figure in the ballroom world.
Every trans woman in the ballroom and pageant community is my sister, too. We have much to learn and teach each other, and need to do a better job in 2015 of connecting and working to solve our common problems together.
And while I'm saddened to hear about Bianca leaving us far too soon, the cool thing is there is plenty of video of our ballroom sister, and you can check it out here.
