SPRINGFIELD – The Queer-Straight Alliance at the University of Illinois at Springfield will host its annual Alternative Prom from 8 p.m. to midnight on Saturday, April 14, in the Student Center, located on the east side of the UIS campus.
This year's theme, "La Vie Boehme," is based on Jonathan Larson's musical "Rent."
The alcohol-free event -- open to all lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgendered, and questioning youth and their allies in the area -- is an opportunity for LGBTQ youth to express themselves while having a good time with friends in a safe environment.
One student ID (from a high school or university) will admit the holder and up to four guests. A king and queen will be chosen, door prizes will be awarded, and refreshments will be available.
