Now in its fourth year, the LGBTQIA+ & Allies Prom is an opportunity for young people to experience a formal style event and express their identity in a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental environment. This free event will be held at the Ainslie Football Club on Friday 8 November and is strictly drug and alcohol-free.
Last year, through the incredible generosity of our community we were able to ensure that all young people were able to attend the prom free of charge.
We want to do this again!
If you’re a young person aged 12-25 years wanting to attend you can register by contacting YWCA Canberra Youth Programs Team Leader, Ciára Duggan, at Ciara.Duggan@ywca-canberra.org.au
The LGBTQIA+ & Allies Prom Awards!
YWCA Canberra knows that there are some exceptional young people in our community and we want to give them the recognition they deserve. These awards will be presented at this event! We will post information about the categories and how to nomination on this page soon.
To ensure this event is completely free and accessible for all young people aged 12-25 years to attend, we are calling on the community to help us by sponsoring a ticket for a young person to attend.
Tickets are $60 each and include a formal sit down dinner, activities and entertainment.
You can choose the amount that you can afford to sponsor, so if you can’t afford the full $60 you can cover half or part of a ticket for $30 or $20. It all counts!
If you have organised a fundraising event and would like to donate a different amount to the LGBTQIA+ Allies Prom, please contact YWCA Canberra Youth Programs Team Leader, Ciára Duggan, at Ciara.Duggan@ywca-canberra.org.au
If you are 12 – 25 years old and you would like to attend this event, please contact YWCA Canberra Youth Programs Team Leader, Ciára Duggan, at Ciara.Duggan@ywca-canberra.org.au
