Alternative prom Saturday

An all-ages alternative prom is set Saturday night in Ashland.

It will run from 6 p.m. to midnight Saturday at the Historic Ashland Armory, 208 Oak St. Tickets are $15 to $30 on a sliding scale for adults and $10 for students. Children 12 and younger will be admitted for free.

The event began four years ago as a way to support gay youth who could not or did not feel safe attending their own proms. This year's theme is "Gender Riot! Celebrating the '60s and the Stonewall Riots' 40th Anniversary." There will be live music, theater performances, a costume contest and coronation.
