ShrevePride Announces “Born This Way” Pride Month Celebration

by BIZ Magazine

Shreveport, LA — ShrevePride is gearing up to host its most significant Pride Month event, “Shreveport Q-Prom: Born This Way,” a Lady Gaga-themed celebration designed to be the Ark-La-Tex’s largest Pride party. Scheduled for Saturday, June 22nd, from 7:00 pm to 12:00 am at Artspace in downtown Shreveport, the event promises an unforgettable night inspired by the music and style of Lady Gaga.

“We are so excited to celebrate Pride Month with everyone in our community and visitors from out of town to enjoy,” said Sam Ortiz, co-founder of ShrevePride. “With Shreveport Q-Prom and other celebrations, Shreveport really has become the regional destination for Pride Month.”

A Second Chance at Prom

Shreveport Q-Prom, which launched in 2019, offers attendees a unique opportunity to experience prom in an inclusive environment. Whether it’s reliving a past experience, attending for the first time, or going as your true self, Q-Prom provides a welcoming space for all, including allies of the LGBTQIA+ community.

The event’s theme, “Born This Way,” will transform Artspace into a multi-floor journey through Lady Gaga’s world, featuring seven unique spaces filled with live music, interactive moments, drag performances, and other entertainment.

“There’s a little Gaga in all of us — confident and vulnerable, colorful and bombastic,” said Chris Lyon, ShrevePride co-founder. “You can dress on theme or in your best prom attire. Take the new love in your life, go with friends, or arrive solo.”

Ticket Information and Accessibility

Tickets for Q-Prom are priced at $35 in advance and $40 at the door, available for purchase at To ensure accessibility, ShrevePride offers Scholarship Tickets funded by generous sponsors, allowing those who might not otherwise be able to attend to participate.

“Scholarship Tickets offered for each event are so important to the mission of ShrevePride,” said Nicole Ortiz, an organizer of the event. “Ability to pay should not be a barrier for anyone to enjoy Pride!”

Inclusivity and Community Focus

ShrevePride emphasizes creating diverse, inclusive, and safe spaces for entertainment, particularly for the LGBTQIA+ community. The organization invites everyone over the age of 16 to join the festivities, with volunteer opportunities also available.

As Shreveport continues to establish itself as a key destination for Pride Month celebrations, ShrevePride’s Q-Prom stands out as a marquee event, promising a night of joy, inclusivity, and community spirit.
