Sweet Honey Buckin’: LGBTQ+ Youth Celebrate Their ‘Rodeo Renaissance’ at Youth Pride Prom

Youth Pride Prom 2024

Last month, the Center held its third annual Youth Pride Prom, giving its LGBTQ+ youth an opportunity to celebrate with friends and peers in a safe space. 

This year’s event bore the theme Rodeo Renaissance, a nod to Beyoncé’s hit albums, Renaissance and Cowboy Carter. Youth and clients took to the dancefloor in their most dazzling prom outfits—inspired by Western attire and disco elements like glitter and chrome accents—to show off their best moves.

Amid the dancing and buckin’, guests let their creativity shine, creating beautiful pink flower bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages with flowers provided by the Bouqs Company. The event also included a bedazzle-your-own-swag station, where attendees could adorn their outfits to shine as bright as they do.

Throughout the night, prom goers filled Pride Hall at the Anita May Rosenstein Campus with fun, love, and laughter. The free event featured delicious catering from the Center’s Culinary Arts program and Sprinkles Cupcakes, as well as a portrait studio, live DJ, raffles, and gift bags from NYX Cosmetics.
