What is Pride Prom?

Every year planning gets underway in January for Montgomery County’s Pride Prom. Volunteers from the county's MoCo LGBTQ Youth Forum and local community members come together to host a prom for the LGBTQ+ youth across all of Montgomery County, MD.


The event thrives off of community resources and donations to provide a spectacular evening for LGBTQ+ teens. Pride Prom is a not-for-profit event that allows them to proudly attend prom, dress however they are most comfortable, and dance - without fear - with whomever they choose...as it should be.


Every student deserves to have their best time at prom.

Prom night

Students pay in advance for an affordably priced ticket to attend Pride Prom. Attendees are invited to wear whatever prom attire they feel most comfortable in. Light food and refreshments are also provided at no cost. 


And then they dance! A local DJ spins the tunes kids want to hear on the dance floor. Pictures are taken, laughs are had, and memories are made. Just like every other prom. 2019's prom photographer was Dave Asche 

Adult chaperones are on hand to always ensure a safe and appropriate environment for all to enjoy.

Although some money is collected through ticket sales, the MoCo Pride Prom does not happen without generous sponsors. Monetary donations are accepted, but there are many ways resources and time can be donated.
