NOVA Pride and Northern Virginia youth LGBTQ+ advocates are teaming up to present the third annual NOVA Pride Prom on Friday, May 12, 2017 from 7:00pm-11:00pm at the Bellevue Event & Conference Center (43350 John Mosby Hwy, Chantilly, VA 20152).
All LGBTQ+ students and allies currently attending a high school in the greater Northern Virginia region are invited and encouraged to attend this unforgettable evening!
CASH/CHECK PAYMENT INFORMATION
Though we prefer payment to be made online, we understand that many High School age youth may not have a check card or credit card. If you need to pay with cash or check, please click below to access our paper sign-up form, and contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a time to turn in your form with payment.
Celebrate our Past
This year's Pride Prom theme is "Celebrate Our Past." Through this, we hope to emphasize the importance of historical LGBTQ+ individuals who have contributed to the LGBTQ Social Movement in a meaningful way. Attendees will be able to scan QR codes using Snapchat placed throughout the venue that lead to various "virtual exhibits" describing different historical figures and events related to the queer community.
Northern Virginia’s high school students will have the chance to dance the night away in The Bellevue’s luxurious Milan Ballroom, which boasts “3300 square feet of crystal white marble” and “3 stunning, smoke chandeliers.” Attendees will also be free to relax in the picturesque Vero Sky Lounge with a panoramic view of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
A Few Regulations
Attendees must be currently enrolled in a high school in Northern Virginia
Attendees must bring a valid school ID, driver's license, or permit to the dance that matches the information on the permission form
Attendees who leave the dance may not reenter
Attendees will abide by the rules and regulations relative to appropriate dancing
Attendees will respond appropriately to requests made by adults who are supervising the dance
A student may bring a date who has graduated high school if they are 20 or under
Dates who have graduated must bring a valid photo ID that matches the information on the permission form
As is custom with Pride Prom, attendees are encouraged to dress in a way that they feel most comfortable, so long as all attire is appropriate for a social setting. Individual expression has been a key component throughout the LGBTQ Social Movement. Dress as fancy or as casual as you like!
A Bit of History
Pride Prom began in 2015 as Lily Hamilton’s high school senior “capstone” project to provide students with a safe space where they could enjoy a prom-like experience. Blake Hesson followed suit in 2016 by planning the second annual Pride Prom. Both years, the event was held in Loudoun County High School’s gym with over one hundred students in attendance each year. Leaders from gender-sexuality alliances across Northern Virginia have collaborated this year to increase Pride Prom’s impact by partnering with NOVA Pride (a local nonprofit serving the LGBTQ+ Community of Northern Virginia and its straight Allies) and relocating to The Bellevue Conference & Event Center in Chantilly. The 2017 NOVA Pride Prom will be open to all high school students in Northern Virginia.
Pride Prom’s mission has persisted: give students the opportunity to express themselves in a supportive environment.
Why You Should Donate
Pride Prom is completely student initiated and executed from start to finish. This means that every bit of the planning is by students, for students to make the biggest impact possible.
This being said, Pride Prom's student leaders need your help to fund the event. All donations will go toward paying for the event venue, decorations, and snacks. Any leftover funds will support local charities serving LGBTQ+ youth in Northern Virginia.
