Join us May 20, 2017, for the 37th annual BAGLY Prom! 
The BAGLY Prom is the world's first and longest running LGBTQ youth prom — it was even covered by TIME Magazine!

First held in 1981, the BAGLY Prom sets the national standard for the way LGBTQ youth come together, support one another, and celebrate! 

This year's Prom will held on Boston City Hall Plaza directly after Massachusetts Youth Pride Festival from 4-7pm and will feature a cosplay competition. The theme for this year's Festival is Resist, Exist, Persist (REP), so come to the Prom repping your favorite character, universe, or just yourself for a chance to win a $50 gift card!



Volunteer Check-in: 3:00pm

Doors Open: 4:00pm

Cosplay Competition: 5:30pm

Prom Ends: 7:00pm

As with all BAGLY events, the Prom will be free of drugs, alcohol, violence, weapons, pressure, sex, and harassment. DO NOT drink or take drugs before coming to the BAGLY Prom. If we think that you are under the influence, if you are found to have snuck in drugs, alcohol, and/or weapons, or if you are found engaging in sex, violence, or harassment, you will be escorted out of the event — no debate, no refund! BAGLY reserves the right to refuse admission to any person believed to be a threat to the overall safety or enjoyment of our event.

Coat Check Policy

  • All youth are required to check their coats and bags at BAGLY’s free coat check. 
  • No suitcases/large bags will be accepted — do not bring them!
  • Water will be provided inside the dance, so any bottles need to either be checked or thrown out before entering. 
  • Once items are checked, youth may only retrieve their belongings when leaving for the night, and are not allowed to get items from or return items to the coat check.
  • A medication lock box will be available at the staffed medical station for any youth who must keep medication such as inhalers or epipens accessible.
