Gay Prom?

Posted by: bfochtman14

So I am a high school senior and I am gay. I live in a very, very rural area and me and my boyfriend have been dating for about 2 months. I really want to go to prom with him but everyone is concerned that it might cause problems.. So do you think I should go or maybe just not?

  • Why not?

  • Heck yeah! If anyone has a problem with who you like, that's there problem, not yours. Don't let other peoples' bigotry stop you from enjoying yourself.

  • Let it go, let it go Can’t hold it back anymore Let it go, let it go Turn away and slam the door I don’t care What they’re going to say Let the storm rage on, The cold never bothered me anyway

  • Not sure what part of the country you live in, but I'm going to say yes. In any part, you definitely have the right to, but depending on where you live, I can understand having concerns about going.

  • they have freedom and its they body

  • tell anyone who looks at you weird to screw themselves...

  • I'm gay, and I will always regret that I went to prom as a friend with a girl, instead of going with the guy I wanted to go with. If you're out, then I'd say go with your boyfriend. If you're still closeted, the issue is more complex, but if you want to talk, you can always PM me...

  • why not?

  • Do it. If people never broke the socially accepted mores & folkways, and did socially rejected things, we'd still have interracial couples afraid to go to prom together. Don't be concerned about them being mad, it isn't your problem; it's theirs.

  • Don't let bigotry and intolerance make you do something you might regret.

  • sounds like fun

  • I would say go for it. My prom was like a decade ago in a conservative city and one of my gay friends went with his partner and had a fabulous time. As long as you feel safe from physical harm, I would try to not let stigma hold you back from getting dressed up and enjoying yourself with someone you care about.

  • Hmmm....well, everyone is same as you. Unless they're lying.

@ChrisF, what do you mean?

If you look, only people who have said yes have explained why. Just noticing.

This is just beautiful. 9 says no and 9 doesn't say why.

Go if you want to, why do you NEED A reason from any of us? If you two like each other and want to enjoy the prom...Go. Just be safe. I don't know what area of the country you are in and if some people will take it upon themselves to intrude on your business.
