BOLINGBROOK — Bolingbrook Pride will be hosting the “Over the Rainbow” GAYla on Saturday, Jan. 4 at the American Legion in Plainfield.
From the Facebook event:
Everybody loves an excuse to get dressed up and fancy! Join us for a 21+ GAYla with dinner, drinks, music, and dancing! Come as you are comfortable, this is a safe place to spread your wings and be your authentic self.
Prom for some was a nightmare of fitting into a very specific box that doesn’t suit them and for others it was a magical night of fun and great memories. Some avoided it completely. Regardless of your experience then, we now have a place to gather that has no gender identity or sexuality expectations.
-Doors Open at 6:30 pm
-Cash Bar (no drinks over $5, most are $2-$3)
-Fun-loving DJ and Dancing
-Silent Auction (must be present to win)
-Dress to Impress! (Black Tie Optional)
