Unlike at the prom, everyone over 21 is welcome. Doors open at 9 p.m., shows are at 10:30 and 11:45 p.m., and the party winds down at 1 a.m. Admission is $10. They suggest you get your dried up corsages out for an epicly awkward prom photo with mom, and wear your neon suit and headgear. They promise to spike the punch.

The LGBTQ Youth Prom provides a safe, affirming, positive and magical place for queer young people. This May will be the 3rd Annual LGBTQ Youth Prom.
This year, more than ever, the events planners have come to realize how much this safe space is truly needed. In today’s radically changed political climate, with daily reminders questioning the validity and belongingness of so many, including people of color, women, different abled folks, transgender people, Muslims, and Latino communities, a place is needed for youth and young adults to feel whole, accepted, and invested in; a place to remind them that the adults in their lives have not forgotten about the importance of celebrating the diversity in our communities.
