YWCA Canberra is hosting a prom for young people across Canberra aged 12-25 who identify as LGBTQIA+ and their allies.

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.  

Now in its third 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 Thursday 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 still register on this page, using the links below.

Nominations are now open for 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! Nominations have been extended and now close on Friday 26 October.

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. For the first time, tickets this year include a formal sit down dinner, activities and entertainment. This year we are also giving you the option of choosing 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!

You can sponsor a ticket/s for a young person to attend the LGBTQIA+ & Allies Prom here.
