A Minnesota High School Hosts an Inclusive Gay-Straight Prom For Students

When I went to my prom I did what most/all closeted gay high school boys did. I took a girl and pretended to have fun. We…gay people…actually become very good at that kind of pretending at young ages. It wasn’t the worst thing in the world. But it wasn’t the same experience the straight kids had in my school. For them, prom night was a nice, sweet memory. For me, it was going through the motions. If I’d been able to go to the prom with a boy I would have enjoyed it just as much as the straight kids. 

And now it looks as though things might be changing, with the help of a former NFL player who came out as gay. 

A former Minnesota Viking is teaming up with Coon Rapids High School’s Gay-Straight Alliance to create a prom that identifies as a more inclusive, safe space for people that may otherwise feel left out.

Here’s more. This gets even better because the initiative started by the former NFL player is called Hate Is Wrong and the focus is on diversity in sports and the bullying of young people. 

Even better than that, all LGBTQIA kids from any school in the county are invited to attend. 

It’s brilliant.
