1101 N. Market St. Wilmington, DE
Who can come?
What age/grade? Rising 10th Graders to Graduating Seniors.
No exclusions! You are welcome no matter your pronouns, gender identity, sexual orientation, or "out" status.
What if I have a straight friend? We want Queer Prom or Pride Prom to be about LGBTQIA+ students. But, the night is about being able to be you. If your straight bff(s) helps you do that, they are more than welcome. We love our allies!
What schools? Because of distance/driving issues, we are marketing to northern Delaware schools. However, the dance is open to all area rising 10th graders and graduating seniors. Public and private school students are encouraged to attend.
How and How much? Tickets can be purchased here for $10.
When? The Prom will kick off at 8pm and close at 11pm. Doors will be open from 7-9pm for community partners and parents (see next column). Students: you're welcome to come around 7pm to chat with local queer organizations. But, they will be around until 9pm.
Can I buy tickets at the door? Technically, yes. Not only do they cost more at the door ($15), pre-purchased tickets will help us and our sponsors know how much swag to bring. Help us out and purchase online.
Your ticket is helpful AF! A portion of ticket sales will go to a local group who works with queer youth.
Parents & Community Partners
Can parents/family/guardians come? Yes and no. There will be plenty of adults keeping an eye out on the dance floor. It's important that we give our queer high school students an anxiety-free place to be themselves, and sometimes the presence of parents can prohibit a student's ability to express their gender or sexual orientation.
However, we want to meet you too! We will have area partner organizations available from 7-9pm in a space separate from the Prom but in the same building (there will be signs and people helping you find the right spot). There you can meet other parents, ask questions, and enjoy your night too!
Light refreshments (and caffeine!) will be available.
