Capslock 90s Prom Fundraiser

Written by  Bill Redmond-Palmer

On March 4th, the latest installation of the dance party Capslock: 90s Prom, returns to The Crown (1910 North Charles Street, Baltimore). Proceeds from Capslock always benefit a local charity and this time it’s the LGBTQ Youth Prom, Baltimore’s first such for LGBT youth and allies, hosted by GLSEN Baltimore, Star Track, and the GLCCB.

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.

DJ Trillnatured a.k.a. Jessica Hyman will play a combination of 90s hits and nostalgic deep cuts that will keep the crowd dancing before and between two sets of live performances. This month’s performers are Whiskey Joy, Betty O’Hellno, Veronica Vron Lush, Kotic Couture, and Baby – Bryan Tarka. Performance styles include drag, burlesque, and dance. Betty O’hellno and Lizzy Falltrades will host.

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.
