What is Waacking / Whacking / W*acking?  W*acking originated from LA’s underground disco scene in the 70s by the Black n Latinx gay community. It’s more than just a dance, but a culture and movement about radical resistance & liberation from systemic racism by reclaiming one’s individuality, speaking our stories unapologetically, and collectively celebrating and seeing one another.

Host: Tracey Wong
