FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Passing the Torch?
Passing the Torch is GLSEN NoVA's annual event honoring local student leaders and Gay-Straight Alliances doing amazing things to make their schools safer for all students. During the ceremony, graduating seniors pass a candle down to students at their schools remaining in the GSA. The event is catered and is our most formal event of the year. A prom follows the ceremony.
What if I'm new or not part of my school's GSA?
That's perfectly fine! You will still get a candle and you can be involved however much you choose. This event is for absolutely everyone!
What is the dress code?
Dress in whatever you feel comfortable! Many people dress in more formal clothes because this event is a prom. Jeans or a suit, you are welcome!
Can my parent or GSA adviser attend?
Yes they can! We strongly encourage parents and advisers to attend. They are included as part of the ceremony and dinner. There will also be a lounge for them available during the prom.
