Pride Prom 2018 Poster

"Be Proud. Be You. Pride Prom 2018."

Pride Prom 2018 is an event being held on April 14, 2018 at Marquette University in the Alumni Memorial Union Ballrooms from 8-11pm. This event is led by a planning team consisting of staff and representatives from the LGBTQ+ Resource Center, MUSG Program Board/Late Night Marquette, and Gender and Sexuality Alliance (GSA) student organization.

Featuring Performances by: Ricardo Wynn, Emcee ; Gold ‘n Blues, acapella performance; HYPE, dance performance; Dance, Inc. Marquette, dance performance

Pride Prom 2018 is intended to be a larger community event focused on our Marquette, Milwaukee and surrounding area community coming together in the celebration of the diversity of our community, in all shapes, forms, colors, and creeds, and specifically the LGBTQIA+ Community. Calling upon our strategic plan initiatives, this event plays into Marquette’s desire to foster a “Culture of Inclusion” and our Jesuit values of Cura Personalis and respect for the dignity of all our students, faculty and staff at Marquette University and the larger Milwaukee area. The planning team sees this event as an opportunity and responsibility to engage with our larger community, both on and off campus, in a way that fosters support, inclusiveness, and value for individuals of all identities. We believe that people entering this space will be able to walk away, touched in mind and heart, observing the diversity that happens within our community and the message of inclusion it espouses. Our hope is that every individual that walks away feels that Marquette University is a place for them and they can see themselves in the “We”, in “We Are Marquette”.



PLEASE NOTE: Please be advised that a student film crew will be documenting Pride Prom and the afterparty at the Annex for a short documentary about Pride Prom and the larger history of Marquette’s LGBTQ+ community. If you aren’t comfortable being included in the final film, please let us know by putting on one of the wristbands provided. Alternatively, those interested in learning more or scheduling an interview can visit the student filmmaker table in the Lynch Lounge outside the event.
