In June we held our annual Pride Prom, and it was another huge celebration and success. The annual Pride Prom aims to provide Gender non-conforming youth ages 13 to 21 from the Lower East Side with the opportunity to be acknowledged, praised, and celebrated. Organized by the teens from Educational Alliance and Grand Street Settlement, Pride Prom incorporates fun (DJ, temporary tattoos, performances by drag queens from The Imperial Court of New York) with education (on-site STD testing, HIV prevention information) and provides a safe, wonderful evening for everyone.

Our teens are so amazing, talented, and strong. We hope these event photos inspire you to be unapologetically YOU! We would like to thank The Imperial Court of New York for providing us with the wonderful and talented drag queens, and Tattly for the colorful and fun temporary tattoos.
