What Should I Wear?

The theme this year is Disco Party!

Of course, we are required to say that attire should be appropriate for a high school prom, but that doesn't mean you didn't get creative. There will be a prize for the attendee whose outfit best fits the theme, so attendees are encouraged to go all out!

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

The ALSO Youth Prom is open to LGBTQ+ youth and their friends and allies ages 14 through 20. Current school or government-issued ID is required to enter the prom. If you don't have access to either of these, please email to discuss other options!


What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

The Sarasota Municipal Auditorium is centrally located near downtown Sarasota. Busses stop nearby, parent drop-offs are welcome, and there is plenty of parking at the event for those who wish to carpool or drive themselves.


What can I bring in to the event?

The ALSO Prom is a drug and alcohol free event. It is also a safe place for LGBTQ+ youth and their friends and allies to have a great time together. For the safety of all attendees, no backpacks, bags etc., bigger than a small clutch will be allowed at the Prom. All bags are subject to search upon arrival and must be checked at the door. Please leave any items you will not need at the prom in your vehicle. Bag check will be available for youth who will be dropped off and picked up so that they will have a safe place to store a change of clothes or anything else that they will need for the evening. You will be given a receipt for your bag so you can retrieve it when you leave. Attendees will not be able to go in and out of their checked bags throughout the prom. All bags will be subject to search by a prom chaperone.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please email with any questions!


Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, you do not have to bring your printed ticket to the event. But be ready to show your school or government-issued ID and your digital ticket on your phone.


Is it okay if the name on ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

When you register for Prom, we ask for both legal and preferred names due to security and to keep all attendees safe. The registered name must match the photo ID upon arrival of the event. That being said, ALSO Youth prioritizes your identity! Please include your preferred name in the appropriate section of the registration form so we can ensure our team refers to you properly. Please email with any questions or concerns.
