Our Youth Programs and Services held it’s 24th Annual LGBTQ Prom at UNIDAD on Miami Beach on July 13, 2019. This event was powered with the support of the City of Miami Beach. They generously provided a venue for us, helped us with the catering and transportation and overall provided invaluable support to put together this much needed event in our community. The theme for this year was “Once Upon a Time” and guests were treated to a magical evening that included entertainment, dancing and a sit down dinner. As one of the few LGBTQ organizations that center around youth, Pridelines continues to foster safe and affirming space for Miami-Dade LGBTQ youth.
The LGBTQ prom is a night that allows youth ages 13-20 to get together in a safe and inclusive space and attend with whom they want and to express themselves freely and without judgment. This year we had over 80 youth in attendance that danced, laughed and enjoyed the evening. For some, it was their first time attending a prom. Thanks to the amazing support we received from the City of Miami Beach, all youth were able to attend the prom free of charge. The night was a success and our youth are already talking about next year's event.
If you're a youth between the ages of 13-24 and would like to be a part of the planning committee for next year's prom, please reach out to D'Mychael at firstname.lastname@example.org or 305.571.9601.
