The Ugg Pride “Prom For All” event airs Friday, May 15 at 8 p.m. E.T. and will be viewable for free through the brand’s website. The link goes live on May 14.
Who Will Be Making Appearances?
Hosted by Tommy Dorfman and his friends, the virtual prom experience will be complete with a beauty tutorial by makeup artist to the stars Kali Kennedy as well as a styling session by celebrity stylist Chris Horan. Alok will be doing a Q&A with Dorfman as well.
The evening will consist of a special guest appearance by Shangela in addition to performances by FLETCHER and DJ Jonjon Battles.
What Is the Cause?
With proms across the country being canceled due to school shutdowns and social distancing, Ugg is bringing a prom where anyone no matters their gender or orientation will be welcomed.
The brand will also be joining forces with its global partner GLAAD (formerly the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation), a nonprofit working towards acceptance and advancing LGBTQ+ equality. Ugg is set to donate $125,000 in 2020 to support the organization’s culture-changing programs, including the GLAAD Media Institute.
