Tickets are $15 each with 100% of the proceeds going directly to Polestar to help fund programs, services, and establish an actual physical location.

QUEER PROM 2017

 

Polestar has been working with Traverse area GSAs to present the first ever LGBT+ Prom!  The goal is to give area LGBT+ High School students and their allies the opportunity to dance, socialize, express their true selves, and have fun without fear of hostility or intolerance.  It also provides LGBT+ students the chance to dress based on their preferred gender expression, or bring their same sex dates, without having to navigate a school’s sometimes restrictive and complicated policies.  The Prom is open to all LGBT+ High School Students and their allies attending schools in Northwest Lower Michigan.

 

The Prom will be held at Hotel Indigo in Traverse City on Saturday, April 29, from 7-11pm.  Tickets are only $5 and purchasing information is available at Polestar's Website.
