The 2016 Annual Hatch Prom will be held on Thursday, June 2 at Numbers, 300 Westheimer Street in Houston. Every year the Hatch Youth participants come up with their own theme.
Introducing the theme for the 2016 Hatch Prom:
The Hatch Prom is a tradition and rite of passage for Houston-area LGBTIQA youth. Imagine going to your high school prom and being able to dress like you want to, dance with your partner, and just be yourself! That's what Hatch prom is all about. You won't recognize the place because it'll be transformed into an awesome dance floor with a rockin' DJ, and tons of yummy food. We'll have a photographer there to take your photo.
As always, adults ages 21+ are invited to purchase tickets for $25 and relive their own prom for $50 at the door. LGBTQIA youth up to age 20 are admitted for free! We encourage the youth to wear a costume, come in drag, gown, tuxedo, or whatever they're comfortable wearing (as long as it's legal!).

Prom is also Hatch Youth's largest fundraiser, and an opportunity for the community to earmark their gifts for programs that benefit LGBTQIA youth. This includes traditional Hatch Youth activities, as well as in-school programs (Safe Zones), and LGBTQIA youth homeless outreach. We thank our generous sponsors, without whom this event would not be possible!
Sponsors will be recognized at the event, on this page, and on the Montrose Center website. Sponsors also may receive reservations to the event. For more information, please contact Meleah Jones at 713.800.0872
Any Houston-area businesses who want to participate with food donations or prom court donations should contact Anna Garza at 713.529.0037 x368.
We need lots of super-awesome volunteers to get things ready and for clean-up. We especially need people that can help decorate and run errands on June 4-5 during the day. If you want to join our Prom Volunteer Crew, please contact Jay Mays at 713.529.0037 x395.
