Safe Space NOVA is pleased to announce its inaugural Once Upon a Prom (and Party). The local nonprofit organization benefiting LGBTQIA+ youth is hosting the inclusive prom on June 14 at The St. James Sports, Wellness and Entertainment Complex from 7-11 p.m. This Student Ambassador organized Pride Prom is unique in that it combines Action (LGBTQ+ advocacy), Compassion (mental health providers will be on call for the event and a quiet board game room will be available), Education (local affirming organizations will be on hand sharing information), and Celebration (it’s a prom and party, after all!).
The event is open to all students (grades 9-12) in Northern Virginia and the surrounding region (e.g., Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C.). High school attendees may bring one invited guest aged 20 and under. Admission includes food, drink, photography, and prom swag. The prom will also include a live DJ, dancing, suspended ropes course, rock climbing, local vendors, trampolines, door prizes, drag shows, and much more.
If you’re interested in volunteering, making a donation, or have questions, please contact Amy@safespacenova.org.
