Beyoncé has paid tribute to O’Shae Sibley, a professional dancer who was tragically stabbed while dancing to her music.
Sibley was vogueing, a dance style that originated in New York’s Black queer and trans ballroom community and gained popularity through pop stars like Madonna and RuPaul’s Drag Race.
The attack is being investigated as a possible hate crime, as Sibley was gay.
Beyoncé honored Sibley on her website, describing him as a powerful force.
The incident occurred when Sibley and his friends were dancing at a gas station and were approached by a group of men who asked them to stop.
A brawl broke out, resulting in Sibley’s stabbing.
He was taken to the hospital but sadly did not survive.
Sibley’s family, friends, and community have condemned the violence and are seeking justice for his senseless death.
