Queer Heaven | 2018 Outright Prom

  • Space Gallery 538 Congress Street Portland, ME, 04101 United States (map)

Be yourself, bring yourself to Queer Heaven.

Queer Heaven is a vision of the world we're building each day through our long-haul organizing for collective liberation and the enduring love of queer/trans family. We honor the legacy of young queer/trans people across time who give each other this world: one moment of care, one act of resistance at a time. We celebrate the young people of Outright as part of this powerful lineage.

Queer Heaven is a night to envision and embody the possibilities of a world without fear, a world without shame, a world based in tenderness, a world where the profound connection between queer/trans people will ripple out and transform everything in our image. We are heavenly beings and together we are ascending into a beloved, divine queer reality.

When: Friday June 15, 2018
Where: SPACE Gallery, Portland, ME
Who: Open to LGBTQ+ people and their allies, ages 14-22
Tickets: $15 at the door (all tickets are sliding scale $0-15 / no one will be turned away for lack of funds)
Featuring music by Portland's own Red Tide

As always, costuming is encouraged and we invite you to dress for whatever queer heaven means to you.

**The Outright Prom is a substance-free event**

The Outright Prom is our annual celebration of LGBTQ+ young people in Maine. Each year we celebrate young people who are organizers, advocates, community builders, and leaders, who put their hearts and bodies on the line each day in service of queer/trans liberation, by throwing them a party. This is a night of tenderness, power, and solidarity.

Join us the next morning as we take our vision to the streets of Portland during Pride:
