Saturday To-Do: Queer Prom 2012

Posted By on Fri, Feb 24, 2012 at 7:57 AM

Queer Prom 2012 is Saturday night at Dedicated.
  • Queer Prom 2012 is Saturday night at Dedicated.
9 p.m. Dedicated. $5-$12.

It's really good to see the people taking back prom from the clutches of authority and lameness, especially for a worthwhile cause. Case in point — Queer Prom, now in its third year in Little Rock. Last year's theme was "Dirty South," but this year the organizers are taking things back to the Roaring '20s with a speakeasy vibe. Look for lots of flapper dresses, garters and doing of the Charleston.

There'll be hooch, too, of the variety that wasn't made in a bathtub, as well as music from Adam Faucett & The Tall Grass, Laundry for the Apocalypse and DJs Poebot and Calico Arms, all hosted by the always charismatic Miranda Meridian. There'll be free HIV testing, a picture booth and more. With a $12 donation, you drink beer for free.

The event is LGBT-inspired, of course, but it's open to all friendly and open-minded folks, regardless of sexuality. A portion of proceeds will go to helping a local transman and the rest will go to organizing an LGBTQI prom for high school students this summer. Dedicated is located at 320 W. 7th St.
