Surrey's First Ever LGBT2Q+ Prom

Okay community. The GSA  (Gender and Sexuality Alliance) at my school has rather boldly taken on organizing and pulling off SURREY’S FIRST EVER LGBT2Q+ PROM. We just had the biggest turn out at GSA today to get the ball rolling. This will be a dance for any Surrey School district student (with ID) who is LGBTQ or an ally. It will be on Monday June 20th. (Classes end on the 17th) from 5:00-8:00pm.

This is where I need some help. Do you have any awesome decorations that you would like to donate? (posters, flags, anything glittery?) Wanna donate some snacks or beverages for students? Are you part of a community group that would like to have a table with resources or info for LGBT2Q youth? Do you have a burning desire to help move tables from the community building out of the way for a sweet dance party? Are you a DJ who wants to jam out for a bunch of wee folks?!?!?!?! If you have some $$ you want to donate that would be swell too. I have 20 days to pull this off and thus far have no donations, food, music, decorations, or any experience planning a dance party for teenagers. EEEEK

Why should you help?!?!?! We want costs for students to be low (like $2 for a ticket- but no one turned away) It is super important for LGBT2Q youth in Surrey to have this community building opportunity and the capacity building for this youth. We are hoping this will be the first annual event. This is huge as even though there are GSAs at most high schools in Surrey many students still don’t feel like they can be in that space or be outed in that way. Surrey is moving in the right direction but it needs all the support it can get!!!!!!

Get in touch and please distribute widely!

Thanks!!!!!
