OHL's 1st Prophylactic Prom a Success!

OHL's 1st Prophylactic Prom a Success!  - OHL's First Prophylactic Prom a Success!

OHL's hosted its inaugural Prophylactic Prom Friday, March 9. Held at Eiffel Society, Prophylactic Prom was a funky, fun special event, loosely resembling your high school prom, but rather than taffeta and tuxes, the "prom court" attire feature creative costumes designed out of condoms, generously donated by ONE. Prophylactic Prom is an opportunity to have fun, break the mold, banish "taboo" subjects, and help Odyssey House Louisiana develop and sustain innovative, evidence-based substance abuse and STD prevention services in New Orleans.

OHL had nine contestants vying for Prom King or Queen, all modeling custom-designed outfits made out of condoms. We had condom bows, condom flowers, condom fringe, you name it. The night also featured dance performances by the Nola Jewels, the Star-Steppin' Cosmonaughties and the Disco Amigos. It was a wonderful night to dance, kick back, and party with a purpose!

Special thanks to our sponsors: ONE, Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, OraSure Technologies and The Red Carpet.
