Queer Prom 2024

Queer Prom was absolutely magical!

Thank you to everyone who attended Queer Prom: Magical Rainforest. The evening featured music from DJ Markie, who kept the dance floor packed all night with fabulous tunes. Charly Charms brought even more enchantment to the event by performing up-close magic tricks for attendees. The crowd was awe-struck by four electrifying drag performances from Wanda Prize and Hunnie Bun.

The Center was filled with pure queer joy throughout the evening. We are so grateful to all of our volunteers, partner organizations, and attendees for making this event such a success!
