Ball culture, the house system, the ballroom community and similar terms describe an underground LGBT subculture in the United States in which people "walk" for trophies and prizes at events known as balls. Some who walk also dance; others compete in drag categories, designed to emulate other genders and social classes. Most participants in ball culture belong to groups known as "houses".
