HISTORY OF THE EVENT

The first Queer Youth Prom of San Mateo County was held in the summer of 2016 after three queer and trans high school students took the initiative to build and craft an event in partnership with the LGBTQ Commission of San Mateo County and the newly opened San Mateo County Pride Center. The event was attended by 35 local queer and trans youth and has since become an annual event for queer and trans high school students to come together, dance, eat food, watch local talent and revel in the joys of being a queer and trans young person in a safe and queer-centered space.

**This event is sponsored by: San Mateo County LGBTQ Commission, Genentech, Box, Verizon, and First Church of Redwood City.**
