The Rochester Public Library’s popular Pride Prom event returns Saturday.
For the fifth year in a row, the library is hosting the teens-only after-party for LGBTQIA+ teens. The “Totally '80s” themed event features food, games, activities and community organizations, along with music programmed by Rochester's Music Department and Riverside Concerts.
“The library is a welcoming space and we want our local teens to have a venue for being themselves,” organizer and Teen Librarian Sarah Joynt said. “Pride Prom gives teens the opportunity to have a fun, welcoming prom in a safe environment.”
Pride Prom is from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday at the library. Teens in grades 7 to 12 can participate and must show a school or state ID at the door, unless prior arrangements have been made. Teens without an ID can contact Joynt at firstname.lastname@example.org to make other arrangements.
