About the event

**This event is not organized by Equality Loudoun** Safe Space NOVA’s Pride Prom is unique, in that it boasts education, compassion, action, AND celebration.

EDUCATION – Students have the unique opportunity to connect with LGBTQIA-affirming organizations that provide social, medical, and mental health support to youth in Northern Virginia and beyond.

ACTION – Students can apply to serve as Pride Prom Leaders who work towards creating the next year’s prom while learning advocacy skills which they are encouraged to turn into action within their communities. New in 2024, youth are also encouraged to become Peer Educators in our “You+Me=We” healthy relationship program, acting as ambassadors of positive, respectful and secure romantic relationships.

COMPASSION – We offer a dedicated Sensory Space and “silent disco” option for neurodivergent and special needs youth — or anyone who just needs to take a break from the action.  All attendees also have access to screened and vetted mental health professionals with experience in LGBTQIA and gender identity issues, as anxiety has been reported by students attending their first dance or experiencing dysphoria.

CELEBRATION – Pride Prom is fun! Students routinely report that it is their favorite day of the year and that they cannot wait for next year’s event. Adult chaperones and volunteers are equally delighted watching the attendees have the time of their lives, feeling included and liberated from the traditional prom experience.

Get Tickets

Ticket price includes non-alcoholic beverages, delicious food by Classic Catering (including a special waffle dessert bar!), and silent disco headphones if desired.  All attendees are also eligible to win phenomenal door prizes including gift cards, pride apparel, sporting event tickets, books, games, and more! Art from Torpedo Factory resident artists and additional pride swag may be purchased using cash, credit card, or Venmo.
