Pridefest Youth Diversity Prom

Saturday, May 19, Knitting Factory

by

This year's edition of Boise Pridefest won't take over the town until mid-June, but that hasn't stopped its organizers from pregaming with a handful of other LGBTQ friendly events. Before the 29th year of festivities kicks off, join the people behind Boise Pridefest and special guest Alyssa Edwards (of RuPaul's Drag Race fame) for a prom night spectacular with the theme "A Night Under the Circus Top." The Youth Diversity Prom will feature food, drinks and plenty of entertainment as well as the usual dancing. Those age 14-20 are welcome to snag a ticket and enter what Pridefest bills as "a safe space to add your color to the rainbow." Last year, organizers estimate more than 35,000 people participated in Pride events—head to the Knitting Factory to get counted early.
