We Are Family is proud to present The Charleston Queer Prom 2019 for youth.

This year’s prom theme is “Enchanted.” Come dressed in full fairytale realness or your prom best. Register here!


Many schools want all girls to wear prom dresses and all the boys to wear tuxedos. We know that for some gay, lesbian, transgender and gender expansive youth don’t fit these molds when it comes to self expression. Additionally, many students are bullied in school and have to be home-schooled, so they miss their prom, or maybe their prom experience through their school is not so LGBT-affirming. However, at the Charleston Queer Prom, you are welcomed to dance the night away and bring whomever you want and wear whatever you want! This is your night to enjoy prom to the fullest! The only requirement is to have fun!
