    Hopefully this will make it more okay for gay couples at dances.

    I definitely had it easy ( somehow) with that.

    I went to Homecoming my sophomore year in highschool with my boyfriend as his date, and last year I went to my younger boyfriend's prom with him and we were the schools first gay prom couple icon_smile.gif

    Its really fun, and it was WAY better than faking it and going with a girl.

    Ya know, I don't DiSLIKE women, I just like guys instead. I will gladly dance with any woman, if she wants. Indeed, I've danced with my partner's sister a number of times. My only reservation is that she's a lot better dancer than me, and I have trouble keeping up.

    When I had my high school senior prom, in 1967, I would have gone if any girl would have had me. I was too nerdy to be considered, however, and I obviously had no interest in girls to press the point, but I would have been glad to escort one.

    If I'd had the ability I would have been pleased to fulfill her girlish fantasies about dancing at the senior prom with a guy, being escorted there, getting a corsage, all those formal things. And why not? It's just a ritual, and it makes some people happy.

    And I'm glad if now, in some places, same-sex couples can also go openly to proms. When I lived in Seattle in the late 1990s, there used to be an annual Spring event called "The Prom You Never Had." At which gay & lesbian couples would attend, most far beyond high school age. The very thought of it, that it would be necessary, always brought tears to my eyes. I will be happy when such an event is no longer needed.
