Spencer Pride’s Youth Group, Iris, had a successful first alternative prom, “Under the Rainbow,” in 2019. With the prom being such a hit, plans for year two are already underway. The kids, alongside their PFLAG parents, will soon be getting ready for this special event.
The proposed theme for this year’s alternative prom is currently “MasQUEERade” to symbolize the luxe 1920’s feeling.
This year’s event will be held at a more centralized location on Indiana University’s campus. The thought behind this is to make the location more accessible to the surrounding youth groups we invite such as Monroe County, Morgan County, and Bartholomew County.
Being that this is a free event, it would not be at all possible without the support and generous donations from community members and local businesses. If interested in making any form of contribution feel free to contact our Youth Empowerment Director, Joy Hellman, at Joy@SpencerPride.org.
