South Bend holds Pride Prom


The first ever Pride Prom will be held Saturday night. Organizers began setting up Saturday afternoon at The Brick in South Bend.

The event is a twenty-one and older prom for the LGBT community. It will include a DJ, refreshments, and a bar.

Organizers said they wanted to throw a party where every couple could feel comfortable being out together.

Willow Wetherall, a Pride Prom Organizer said, "We wanted to have a pride prom because we realized many people in the GLBT community never attended their prom or if they did they didn't get to go with who they wanted to go with."

Two hundred people are expected to attend tonight. Tickets sold out for the event, but if you're interested in next year's event click here.
