Do you have Pride? Were you maybe a little uncomfortable taking a same-sex partner to your high school prom? Then take your significant other to OKC Pride’s Second-Chance Prom, a fundraiser that encourages you to “bring who you really want.” The fun begins Saturday with an 8 p.m. pre-party at Alibi’s, 1200 N. Pennsylvania Avenue, and will progress to IAO Gallery and Grandad’s Bar in the following hours. Tickets are $25 per person and $45 per couple. Guests must be 21 or older to attend. Visit ticketstorm.com.
If you were around OKC in the 90s, you know how much progress we’ve made because of the Metropolitan Area Projects, better known as MAPS. Local artists created works exploring the project’s impact as part of the MAPS 20th Anniversary Artist Projects exhibition, and an opening reception will be held 6 p.m.-9 p.m. Friday at Individual Artists of Oklahoma, 706 W. Sheridan Ave. The exhibit runs through March 15. Call 232-6060, or visit oklahoma.uli.org.
