GLSEN Prom held at CAC last Saturday

The Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network held its annual prom over the weekend at the Contemporary Arts Center. Adults, those 21+, took the top floor with a live band, delicious food and cash bar. The kids were relegated to the downstairs where it looked like a typical prom, with a DJ and mocktails served by volunteers. The decorations were beautiful and it seemed that everyone had a great time. The best thing about GLSEN Prom is that it allows queers of all ages to wear whatever they want and bring whomever they want to the big dance without fear of repercussions from fellow students, staff members or the formal rules of the school itself.
