Westchester Celebrates 15 Years of Same-Sex Prom Dances

THE SHOT — A pair of prom-goers at the 15th Annual Gay Prom put on by Center Lane in Westchester, New York, where more than 200 teens slow danced to Justin Bieber’s “First Dance,” or whatever the kids are listening to these days. [We Are Youth; photos via Laurel Golio]

      why are these “teen” prom-goers fat???
      they dont have to be tight muscular beef heads or skinny twinks but that’s sending such a bad example.

      @alejandro: What bad example is that? “Silly ‘fat’ homos, pictures are for the visually-pleasing to the shallow eye”. Xenophobic douche <_<

      @Viral: wow calm down. xenophobic?? really? is it not unhealthy to be overweight? all i was saying was that being fat should not be promoted. especialy to teens who already are having this problem.

      @alejandro: What can I say, Hostility is my anti-drug X3

      Being overweight doesn’t automatically equal unhealthy.

      Though your wording is a bit… “off”. Not seeing how prom pic are promoting anything, that’s just how their bodies currently are. It’s not like either are wearing shirts saying “I’m Fat, Take That” or something.

      You are obviously or at least come off as a person more health-conscious than average and likely have an (personal) “ideal” weight for your height and society standard. And that’s where the xenophobia comes in, as you see the two in the pic, peg them as “fat” or being in the slightest bit overweight as problematic, with years of diabetes, high blood pressure, respiratory problem etc ahead of them and your aversion to their unappealing weight attacks them as people.
