Prom?

stardust's picture

So I got this magazine in the mail full of Prom dresses and I thought what the hell? But then I started thinking about it. I never really cared about it, but now I think it's one of those few high school rite of passage that I actually want. Alas I am homeschooled, so no prom, but possibly a gay prom, though I doubt it.

So my question is this: Has anyone here been to a gay prom? Or planning on going to one? Or maybe a straight prom? Who did you go with? And if you went to a straight prom, did you go openly gay? Any additional thoughts about proms?

I went to my highschool

I went to my highschool Prom...and my girlfriends high school prom. We both went openly gay. She wore the dress, I wore the tux :]

It’s not like love at first sight, really. It’s more like… gravity moves. When you see her, suddenly it’s not the earth holding you here anymore. She does. And nothing matters more than her. And you would do anything for her, be anything for her… You beco

yeah...

I went to prom my senior year, just so I could say I went. No date (but I was only just coming out to myself then). It was not that great. The dance area was super crowded and I didn't really actually have much fun...

I did go dress-hunting with a couple of my friends a week or two before, though. There's this place in the city I lived in that lets you borrow a prom dress for $10, and I found this really, really pretty pale purple one with beads on the front. That dress made me feel so pretty. So really that was the best part.

I think my college GSA sponsors a gay prom every year, but am not sure if I'd be interested in going.

i'm gonna go to queer prom

i'm gonna go to queer prom this year! my gsa goes, and this year we're gonna have a bunch of bake sales and rent a limo. XD i haven't been before because it's my first year in gsa, but i'm psyched. as far as school prom goes, i'll prolly go this year since i have a bunch of senior friends, and then i'll go next year as well. dateless for both proms though, i bet, not that i really mind.
