Sacramento Queer Prom this Sat, April 24, 6-11p

This Saturday, April 24, 2010, the Sacramento Gay & Lesbian Center is throwing their 2nd annual Queer Prom in downtown Sacramento:
This event was created by The Center in 2009 because of the interest of the Gay Straight Student Alliances in Sacramento Area High Schools. The groups were looking for the chance for self expression outside of the traditional school proms. Last year over 160 promgoers attended. This year 200 are expected.

The night will be similar the traditional spring school proms. The room will be decorated with the Hollywood Glamor theme. DJ Jeremy Fristoe will handle tunes. Photographer Larry Lauszus will take prom pictures in an old bank vault in the building where the dance is held.

Many prom events today can cost $100 for admission in addition to tuxes, prom dresses and other expenses. The Queer Prom will have just a $10 admission fee (no formal dinner included!) and a dress code that says, Flashy or Glamourous!

Rather than traditional expectations, promgoers will be able to use their imagination and let go with outfits that they create, expressing their own self concepts for the event, without the obligation for large expenses.
And yes, there will be the traditional monitors, chaperones, and security. Well, not quite traditional security, the Sacramento Valley Leathercorps and other gay Sacramento leather groups will provide the outdoor and visible security.
The event goes from 6-11p. Awesomely, a Napa group of youth is wanting to go and arranging carpools. If you're a Napa youth who wants to go, visit that page to coordinate with other youth from Napa. (Side note, many of these Napa youth are involved in planning a similar event to take place during Napa Pride in June 2010. Clear your calendars, now!)
