Description

What's ALSO Prom?

ALSO Prom is an annual high school prom for LGBTQ+ youth, friends, and allies (ages 14-20), hosted by ALSO Youth and The Out-of Door Academy.

We will have plenty of food, a DJ and dancing, photo booth fun, and most importantly, a safe space for LGBTQ+ youth of our community, and their friends and allies, to gather and celebrate.

Thanks to our anonymous sponsor, ALSO Prom is FREE to attend!


FAQs

What should I wear?

The theme this year is ~Enchanted Forest~ and open to your interpretation!

This is your prom: wear what makes you feel your best! Of course, we are required to say that attire should be appropriate for a high school prom, but that doesn't mean you can't get creative. There will be a prize for the attendee(s) whose outfit best fits the theme, so go all out and shine!

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

The ALSO Prom is open to LGBTQ+ youth and their friends and allies ages 14 through 20. Current school or government issued ID is required to enter the prom. If you don't have access to either of these, please email prom@alsoyouth.org to discuss other options.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

The Out-of-Door-Academy is a bit further than the public buses go so you'll have to get a ride with parents or friends. There is plenty of parking at the event.

What can I bring into the event?

The ALSO Prom is a drug and alcohol free event. It is also a safe place for LGBTQ+ youth and their friends and allies to have a great time together. For the safety of all attendees, no backpacks, bags etc., bigger than a small clutch will be allowed at the Prom. All bags are subject to search upon arrival and must be checked at the door. Please leave any items you will not need at the prom in your vehicle. Bag check will be available for youth who will be dropped off and picked up so that they will have a safe place to store a change of clothes or anything else that they will need for the evening. You will be given a receipt for your bag so you can retrieve it when you leave. Attendees will not be able to go in and out of their checked bags throughout the prom. All bags will be subject to search by a prom chaperone or a police officer.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please email prom@alsoyouth.org with any questions!

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, you do not have to bring your printed ticket to the event. But be ready to show your school or government issued ID and your digital ticket on your phone.

Is it okay if the name on ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

No, the name on the ticket must match the person attending - this does not mean that your name or the name on your ticket has to match the name on your ID. For safety reasons, each attendee must register themselves so that we know who is on site. You should register yourself with whichever name you want to be called, and this is the name that will be on your ticket. Please email prom@alsoyouth.org with any questions or concerns. Tickets are limited, so be sure to get your own ticket today!

What if I register for a ticket, but then I can't attend the event?

Please email prom@alsoyouth.org if you no longer need your ticket. This event does have limited tickets, so we want the opportunity to be available to as many youth as possible!
