On Saturday, September 14, 2019, the San Mateo County Pride Center will host "Somewhere over the Rainbow—A Peninsula MasQueerade," the first ever LGBTQ+ Adult Prom in the Peninsula! It will be a night of dancing and joyous celebration in support of LGBTQ+ people. The event will take place at Three Restaurant & Bar on 3rd Ave in San Mateo. We are anticipating a sold-out event with over a hundred people in attendance! We would love for you to be part of this event!

This Prom came about from community requests to reclaim the prom experience for people who didn’t have the chance to be their authentic selves in the past, and who are ready to celebrate now! (This is a 21+ event).

Come dressed in prom finery of any era, or come dressed for a masQUEERade! All Friends of Dorothy -- or Glinda or Elphaba! -- are welcome!

DATE: September 14th at 8:00pm-12:00am at THREE Craft Kitchen & Bar in Downtown San Mateo

(Alcoholic drinks also available for purchase at Three's extensive bar.)

Drawings will take place throughout the evening for prizes including a Toto (Pet) Care Package; Season Passes to the New Conservatory Theater Company (Don't look behind that curtain!); Glinda's Glam Gifts; your very own personal Tornado (really!), and wine for melting you or your favorite Wicked Witch of the West (Bay.)
