Donate to the 3rd Annual Wilco Iris LGBTQIA+ Prom
Wilco Iris adult volunteers and student leaders work tirelessly to provide a safe and nurturing community for LGBTQIA+ students across Williamson County, TN. Wilco Iris is dedicated to helping youth feel supported, heard, and most of all loved.
In April of 2022, Wilco Iris hosted the first ever LGBTQIA+ friendly prom in Williamson County with the help of donations and support from our community. This inaugural event was a huge success with over 70 Williamson County high school students and two dozen adult volunteers in attendance. Our students were able to connect, dance, and create memories all in an affirming and safe environment. We even attracted the interest of The Tennessean, who highlighted the students’ efforts in an article.
In 2023, as word spread of the “best prom in Williamson County,” our event grew even bigger. We hosted almost 100 students for Masquerade, our 2nd Annual Prom event.
Our goal for 2024 is to provide an expected 150+ students with the same opportunity. The prom will be held on March 2nd, and is open to all LGBTQIA+ high school students and allies from across our county. Your contributions are greatly needed as we plan for an even larger, more fabulous event in 2024.
