THE PEOPLE'S PROM is the prom you never had in high school: it's a radical, community-oriented, anti-capitalist, queer, cross-dressing, gender bending, bike loving, slow dancing, big dress wearing, good time. It's annual, it's in East Van, and it's a fundraiser for creative resistance and direct action in BC... AND THE BEST DANCE PARTY YOU’LL EVER MAKE OUT AT.
You don't need a date for this dance party, just a good attitude and a party outfit... Have a date? Bring them!
