About this event

LGBTQIA2+ and allied folx, ages 13-24, are invited to dance and celebrate prom in a blacklight glow party featuring a Live DJ, live performances, food and beverages, a photo booth and more. Remember, we're dancing under the blacklight so wear bright colors if you want to glow!

Tickets to this party are now FREE thanks to generous donations by Amy Pitlik and Lauren Cikara, who are dedicated to making and maintaining spaces for queer joy.

Notes for attendees:

  • To respect our hosts at Hillside Community Center, PLEASE wear sneakers or other shoes that don't scuff! No high heels are allowed in the gym.
  • MASKS ARE REQUIRED for the safety of all IOYS participants, volunteers, and your fellow partiers!
  • Some form of identification (with date of birth or school grade) is required for entry.
  • Bags will be inspected at the door to ensure everyone's safety inside the event. A bag and coat check will be available at the door.

Note for parents/guardians:

This dance is for ages 13-24 ONLY. Adults over the age of 24 may only attend as chaperones if they are certified volunteers through Inside Out Youth Services.

Parents and guardians are not typically allowed in IOYS spaces while youth and young adults are in attendance, as this is a space for young people to be fully themselves. We respect everyone's right to come out as their authentic selves at a pace that is comfortable for them. Inviting parents (even affirming parents!) into this space can decrease the sense of safety and community.

IOYS commits to ensuring the dance is fully supervised and chaperoned with trained, youth-safe volunteers and staff, as well as professional and trained security staff. Safety, physical and emotional, is our number one priority.
