SGA to host 2nd chance prom

Students unable to bring  their same-sex date to the high school prom may find the second time’s a charm.

This Saturday from 8:30 to 11 p.m., the Student Government Association will host Emerson’s first prom in honor of LGBTQ students who didn’t bring their chosen date to their own prom.

“It’s something I myself have always been very passionate about,” said President Cami Bravo.

SGA Vice President Tau Zaman presented the idea last semester.

“He just wanted to have a prom for people who come from conservative towns,” said Bravo.

Tickets can be purchased for a suggested donation of $3, from any SGA member, or at the door. All proceeds will go towards GLBTQ youth, said Bravo.

The 2nd Chance Prom will be the kickoff of Rainbow Week, a week of events dedicated to GLBTQ students at Emerson. Events will include a sexy poetry slam and photo shoots.
