Queer Prom for Midlands Youth

$675 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 26 people in 12 months
Help us raise money for our 3rd annual Queer Prom!  

Often in school settings, proms and other “couple” events can be particularly isolating for LGBTQ+ youth. Discrimination and marginalization come in many forms at these types of events whether its adherence to a strict dress code, extra fees to bring a date of the same-sex/gender, or simply not being allowed to attend.

Additionally, transgender youth are frequently invalidated by prom dress codes that prohibit them from dressing in a gender-affirming manner. For these reasons and many more, the Harriet Hancock Center's Youth OUTLOUD program is holding the third annual Queer Youth Prom in South Carolina.

Want to help? 
Here's some things you can help us cover- 

$10 / Delish!
Donate food, drink, sweets and a slice of a custom Alice in Wonderland themed cake for one student. 
$20 / Ghost Couple
Sponsor a couple of partners (or pals) to go to prom! 
$50 / Turn it up
Sponsor half an hour of music spun by our local DJ.
$100 / #Extra
Sponsor one hour of hair or make up for our students who don't have the funds or family support to look selfie ready for their big night. 
$250 / Gay-Straight Alliance
Sponsor an ENTIRE Gay-Straight Alliance in the Midlands to go to prom!
$350/ You're a Star!
Literally! Your name will be listed among the golden star decorations as a sponsor.
$500 / Fierce 
Not only are you fierce but you will receive a shout out on the dance floor. For a business this is an opportune time for promotion.
$1000 / Yas Queen!
In addition to receiving the other forms of promotion, you will also be listed as an official SPONSOR for next year's Queer Prom.

Prom was a great success! We anticipated 50 or fewer teens and started out at that number until word got out that was LIT. Once that happened we broke 70. There were first dances, first kisses and a whole lot of dancing.

We got our first donation! So, naturally we took a moment out of study hall to make a super gay thank you card.
"This is serious, be serious..."
