Just last week we called proms “elitist, sexist bullshit,” but that doesn’t mean we don’t support LGBT youth enjoying their own special proms, especially when those proms involve 80 local youngsters, PFLAG, the It Gets Better campaign, a female prom king, and a male prom queen—sexism be damned!
That’s why we’re giving two snaps, a twist, and a kiss to the Stonewall Democrats Rio Grande Valley Chapter for organizing the “2011 Right To Prom” event held this last weekend. But the voters at the Valley Central newspaper poll don’t feel as gay about it as we do. So let’s bring the rainbow-flavored sunshine by voting “Yes” to local LGBT proms and post our support of the newspaper’s coverage on the comments.
And yes, that is a picture of Justin and Brian from Queer As Folk above. And no, we don’t approve of groundbreaking Showtime dramedies that turn into soulless, over-produced glitter trash.
