Gay Prom

For some years now NO/AIDS Task Force has put on an annual LGBT prom. It started out as an alternative to regular high school and college dances for gay students who would not be allowed to attend with a same sex date. This is becoming a national issue–discrimination against LGBT youth– thanks to some brave students and crusaders like Dan Savage.

Anyway, in 2006 re:Vision (“a CDC funded MPowerment project of NO/AIDS Task Force that aims to build a healthy social setting for gay and bisexual men ages 18-35. The project promotes safer sexual behavioral practices while encouraging members to create an environment that is safe, secure and free from judgment”) joined with NO/AIDS and opened up the prom to people of all ages, realizing that many LGBT people never got to have the prom experience. Pretty sweet, huh? To tell you the truth, I could use some catharsis regarding some adolescent school dance experiences…

So, anyway, it’s tonight. And it’s open to all aged members of the LGBT community, and friends and family. 7:30p-12:30a. @Zeitgeist. Can you imagine the ball gowns?
