Two gay prom events are slated to take place this summer to allow LGBTQ+ kids from all over the country to celebrate their love on the dance floor. BuzzFeed’s second annual prom will take place on June 1 in New York’s Meatpacking District, while L.A.’s The Princess Project, a charity that provides low-income teens with formal wear, will host its first LGBTQ+ prom in Santa Monica for queer teens. Prom is on Friday, May 18 and doors open at 7:00 p.m. Tickets can be purchased for prom alone, or for prom and an amazing make-up experience with Benefit Cosmetics Beauty Bar consultants and stylists. Teen Vogue will be on hand for interviews and photography.
BuzzFeed’s queer prom is currently accepting applications from kids across the country. The prom will feature “interactive experiences, dancing, special appearances by celebrity allies, BuzzFeed talent and much more.” The event will be hosted by BuzzFeed Creators Curly Velasquez and Jazzmyne Jay Robbins.
“BuzzFeed’s audience represents a diverse array of people from around the world and we strive to give a voice to underrepresented groups through identity-based content,” said Velazquez and Robbins in a statement. “We are so excited to bring back Queer Prom for the second year in a row to give a night of inclusivity and pure acceptance to LGBTQ+ high schoolers and amazing content to show the rest of the world.”
