New Bern
Pride Prom

Junior Prom Canceled

Due to lack of ticket sales thus far we had to make the decision to cancel the event. 

However, we would love for you all to attend the vendor fair that is open an hour before Senior Prom, on June 4th from 6-7pm. There will be mocktails, music and fun for all ages with no ticket required. 


Apologies for the inconvenience and we hope to host a high school pride prom in the future.

The LGBTQIA+ Group of New Bern, NC

The LGBTQIA+ New Bern Facebook group was founded in August 2021 and now boasts over 400 members. It has become a haven for all LGBTQIA+ individuals in New Bern and the surrounding areas. 

The idea for Pride Prom sparked when the LGBTQIA+ New Bern admin, David Bucksot, had a prom themed birthday party and  saw his friends experience prom for the first time, or in some cases, all over again – but this time as themselves. He wanted to share this experience with the rest of the New Bern community, so he gathered his friends to help create his vision on a large scale. New Bern Pride Prom committee members include Katie Pearson, Cher Durham, Meg Wethington, Mike Fucci, Chris Mcgrath, Kyle Edwards, Laura Snell, Aaron Williams, Michael Dugay, Caela McCarthy and Brandy Fillingame.
