Before you contact us, here are some of the most frequently asked questions. Read them. Please. We beg of you.
We here at the Gender & Sexuality Resource Center are of the opinion that open dialogue about sex, gender, and sexuality is healthy for kids. That said, we are also childless and recognize that parents know their children better than we do. Just know that The Fire Ball does not declaw the performers, so the content can get a bit...colorful. We have yet to encounter a traumatized child during a show; the ones who have attended usually have a blast. Ultimately, however, it is your decision what is best for your child.
Take a close look at these faces, as they sum up the parking situation. We do apologize for what could potentially be a frustrating experience for you. Generally speaking, arriving early will prevent escalating blood pressure, as you may have to circle the Davies Center parking lot several times, before finding a spot. The Hibbard parking lot is also an option. Remember, it'll be nippy, as this event is in February. So, please bring fanciful outerwear designed to keep your digits alive and your face thawed.
One of the most common questions we receive! Our answer is always the same: you know that one outfit that you've been dying to wear but that always feels...a bit much? Now's your chance! The Fire Ball is an opportunity to be your most fabulous self! We encourage you to "Come as you are. Come as you want to be." There is no such thing as too glam. Have fun and be fierce!
The Fire Ball has been called Queer Homecoming for a reason: we aim to provide an inclusive space, wherein which all identities and expressions are celebrated. The entertainment is a bonus! You can wear what you want. Be who you want. Express yourself in any and every way. All we ask is that you nurture the space we have created, such that all attendees have an amazing time. We've heard from numerous Fireballers over the years that "the energy is always so positive; you can feel the love!" Honor that by bringing the love!
