    Youth Queer Prom

    June 9 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm


    It has been two years since we were able to bring together the youth community for a special evening of dancing, music, food, and drag. And we can’t wait to celebrate together again! Get your tickets today and join us in the Enchanted Forest this June!

    That’s why on June 9th in Downtown Asheville, Youth OUTright is hosting a queer prom where we invite LGBTQIA+ youth ages 14-20 to join us in The Enchanted Forrest for a magical, affirming evening under the stars.

    Entertainment: Queer prom will feature a variety of entertainers and activities! We will have DJs, a drag performance, crafts, and interactive installations. Stay tuned as we announce our lineup of magnificent creatives!

    Catering: We are so excited to be working with Bun Intended, local Thai-inspired street food, to cater queer prom! Every attendee will receive a food ticket that includes a beverage and a variety of protein, vegan, and gluten-free bites ranging from salty to sweet.

    Health & Safety: Prom is at an outdoor venue. We will be monitoring developments in COVID-19 to determine the best protocols to keep everyone healthy. Details will be shared in emails leading up to the event. To ensure the safety of all our guests, we’ve hired a community security team for prom. These individuals are practiced in de-escalation and have served as street medics.

    No-Cost Tickets: This is a no-turn-away event. If you are seeking a no-cost ticket, please email us at info@youthoutright.org to receive a promo code.  Tickets: $25

    Location: Downtown Asheville.  Specific location shared with ticket.  Purchase ticket.

    Holistic Perspectives P.O. Box 333, Enka, NC 2872  Phone: (828) 333-0103  | siljoy@me.com or  www.HolisticPerspectives.com For many years now I have been mentoring men and women from all walks of life. It continues to be my greatest joy to accompany someone from “just being ok” into thriving! As a Mentor & Healer I partner with my clients in creating authenticity, wellness and deep contentment, in whatever area of their lives they are seeking change. The combination of giving very practical, livable tools for direct “next steps” while “holding the big picture” and then manifesting that big picture often feels like this: a new client brings me their life or life situation in a jigsaw puzzle box, they lost the lid and forgot what the picture on it looked like. I am good at knowing that picture and then guiding my clients/mentees to put all the puzzle pieces together.
