Chicago GSA Prom

Chicago GSA Prom

For nine years, the Chicago GSA Prom has offered a safe, welcoming, and fun alternative to traditional school proms for Chicago’s LGBTQ+ students and allies.

Open to all students in grades 9–12, the Chicago GSA Prom turns away no student, regardless of their ability to pay for a ticket. To remain totally inclusive, the Chicago GSA Prom relies on donations to subsidize costs for students who are unable to pay.

This year’s Chicago GSA Prom will be held at Phoenix Military Academy, and we’re asking for your support to make it night students will never forget. In addition to subsidizing student tickets, your donation can help pay for food, photography, a DJ, and other essential features of a first-rate prom.

It feels great to be myself with a bunch of people who are also in same-sex relationships and feeling like we’re not being judged.

When I go to school dances at my school, it’s mostly just about dancing with really loud bass that makes your heart feel weird. And this, like everyone is talking to each other and meeting each other and saying nice things.
