We are super excited to announce that this year's "Queer Prom - Behind the Velvet Rope" is partnering with The West Hollywood EDITION and The City of West Hollywood as part of their #WeHoPride programming. Held at the stunning Sunset at EDITION, NiK Kacy Presents Queer Prom will kick off Pride Month and #WehoPride weekend with a Studio54-themed celebration and raise funds for Equality Fashion Week, the first LGBTQ+ focused fashion week in LA!

Sunset at EDITION was created by Ian Schrager, co-founder of the original STUDIO54 and is the perfect venue to hold this year's fabulously upscale and classy prom! We are super excited to bring this event to you and transport you to a time when folks of all identities could gather in one place and just dance and lose themselves even during the scariest of times. Currently, we are no stranger to scary times and that is why we want to create a totally different vibe from last year's high school-themed Queer Prom. We hope you can join us in unity and celebration!

NiK Kacy Presents: Queer Prom is an annual benefit for Equality Fashion Week, the first LGBTQ+ focused fashion week in LA aimed at providing access, elevation, and visibility for our LGBTQ, People of Color, and Differently-abled communities across the nation as we continue the fight for equality, acceptance and thrive, rather than just survive.

This year's Queer Prom theme is Studio54, a place where everyone was encouraged to be free, and people from all walks of life gathered to dance the night (and their troubles) away.

[Proof of Vaccination or a negative Covid test required. Please do not attend the event if you have cold or flu-like symptoms. We aim to keep this event as safe as possible so everyone can have fun for the rest of Pride month!]

ABOUT SUNSET

A modern take on Studio 54, Sunset is a modern clubhouse with a dedication to great music located beneath The West Hollywood EDITION. In the spirit of the dozens of iconic clubs that dotted the sunset strip in the 60’s and 70’s, Sunset launched in November 2019 and quickly established itself as an exclusive hedonistic hotspot with regular Globally renowned acts performing within the space. Designed for multiple experiences, the destination offers a cocktail bar and lounge, a private room that invokes the feeling of a speakeasy and LA’s most raucous dance floor beneath 400 disco balls.
