Sexual Health Wellbeing and Drug Use Harm Reduction for All Islanders

PEERS Alliance supports those living with and at risk for HIV, Hep C and all sexually transmitted infections in PEI by offering a variety of programs and services targeted diverse communities.

Our center serves people of all genders and sexual orientations. We support those who use drugs in developing strategies to reduce the risk of negative health outcomes. Our programming strives to address the underlying issues affecting the health and welfare of our communities by countering stigma and creating environments where all are welcome.

Plus, it’s totally free. So, find an outfit that makes you feel FABULOUS (no dress code – this is queer prom after all!) and join us on May 10th at the Rodd Charlottetown Hotel between 7pm and 11pm.

Transportation to and from this event is available in Prince County through a partnership with the Summerside Boys and Girls Club/CCU Youth Engagement Centre. Chaperoned transportation (organizational bus or van) will leave the Summerside Boys and Girls Club at 6:15pm and return to the Summerside Boys and Girls Club at 11:45pm.

Over the Rainbow is a chem free-event — we are providing an absolutely drug-and-alcohol-free space with no exceptions. Anyone violating the rules will be removed. Prom is chaperoned by hired security, PEERS Alliance staff, and PEI Queer Youth Collective facilitators.
