    Last night I was serving at my restaurant when I saw a group of high school kids, girls decorated in elaborate dresses, and boys in handsome suits. I sat them down when one girl asked me If I was working instead of going to my prom night,

    It then struck me that I never went to prom, since I was home schooled my junior and senior year of what have been my high school years.

    I went with the story and told them yes, I was working and skipped my prom night, and they started telling me their experiences. I felt like Cinderella that never got a chance to go to the ball. and kind of made me wish I stayed in public school just to experience what prom was like.

    I was wondering if you guys went to your prom, and what was it like.

    I didn't go. Even then I was unsure of my sexuality, but I used school work as an excuse. (Didn't stop my dad from bugging the crap out of me though.)

    No regrets here though.

    Looking back at that time, prom seemed ok to me. It was in high school, and I didn't really have good friends or a guy back then. For senior prom, I didn't have a guy to take with me which would've made it more fun for me. I also felt distanced from everyone else who was at prom. I was not really friends with anyone from my high school class. It was alright, I'm glad I went and enjoyed it, but it's at the back of my mind now. It's basically a big dance, an expensive one too.

    I never went to prom and have never regretted it! I've been to dances and it's fun, but I didn't care much for prom.

    Instead, a group of buddies and myself partied it up at a rich friend's house. We ordered pizza, played video games, drove around town, and had an awesome time. :-)

    No HS prom in 1967. Didn't have a GF, had never even dated, wasn't gonna go by myself.

    Years later in Seattle there was a popular annual gay event we referred to as "The Prom You Never Had", although I think it had a different official name. Some guys went in drag, but most just went as guy-guy couples. Not sure if it's done anymore.

    There were school dances i went to all throughout high school so I really don't think I missed anything because it was just another school dance ... so what did I miss ... probably just saying, "Byyyyye bitches!"

    I went to a school dance once, not as exciting as I thought it would be. But I do want to experience this magical chocolate fountain everyone spoke of when I was serving those kids.

    that sounds like a wonderful idea. should be a national LGBT prom event where gay people all across the country can do a prom thing.

    I went to 7 homecomings and 4 proms. I moved after my freshman year but was always invited by a friend to go with them every year. There would have been one more prom if I would have been able to make it.

    I went to prom, my date sort of ditched me while we were there, but I remained with my friends and still had fun. Anyways, I don't know if you go to college or not, but when I was still a student I was a member of the GLBTQ club and every year they would host a 'prom' night for all those people that couldn't go in high school/ couldn't bring their boyfriend/girlfriend, etc. It wasn't as high scale as to my high school one, but I think it was the gesture that counts.
