A Better Future for Our Youth
While most people are bystanders and not standing up or acting out towards a better future for our youth, Philadelphia Dentistry and Dr. Ken Cirka changed that. On Sunday, May 27th we will be changing the lives of LGBTQ+ teens by sending 500 teenagers to prom at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, PA. This one small action can change the lives of so many by giving these prom-goers the opportunity to experience a milestone in their teenage life.
Come as You Are
The fifth annual LGBTQ+ Youth Prom which is one of the only LGBTQ+ Youth Proms in the Southwestern part of Pennsylvania will be helping underprivileged teens from 13-20 years old have the time of their lives. This prom is an opportunity for participants to be able to completely be themselves, which is not always the case at their schools, homes, or even in their communities. An evening, that includes a sit-down dinner, silkscreen printing, dancing, and many other activities planned to give the teens a night they won’t ever forget!
The Warhol Museum actively supports the LGBTQ community by having different events at the museum, such as, celebrating National Coming Out Day by having special tours offered every last Saturday of the month at three o’ clock. In 2014, Grace Marston who is one of the LGBTQ Youth Prom advisors created a tour called, the Dandy Andy: Warhol’s Queer History tour. This tour takes you back in time to the legends romantic relationships and queer identity during the gay rights movement in America.

This event is generously supported by the American Eagle Outfitters Foundation and Philadelphia Dentistry’s very own, Dr. Ken Cirka to help change the lives of our youth to make a better future for everyone.
