Save the Date on Friday, June 11, for the 18th annual HATCH prom, which will be held from 7 p.m. – midnight in the GLBT Cultural Center at 401 Branard. The prom is an important right of passage in America, and all too often the high school prom is not safe and affirming for our communities’ youth.

Adults are invited to attend for a $25 donation. Support HATCH by attending the prom, and embrace this opportunity to remake your own prom memories.
