The Charleston Queer Prom 2019


This past Saturday, May 11th, we had a record number of 186 youth attend our annual Prom event, a major growth from last year's event which had 109 youth in attendance.

The Prom featured a vivacious dance floor accompanied by music spun by DJ Lonatron and a giant disco ball, catered food & signature mocktails, a selfie station with Merman, "Blixunami the Geechee Merm," a professional photo booth, and a quiet zone with video games, play doh, and ear plugs.

Prom was funded through Alliance for Full Acceptance’s small grant fund and individual donations. Thank you to our fabulous friends at Redux for providing the space, Tanis J Events, LLC for providing draping, and Roadside Blooms for the beautiful flower arrangements.
