Gay Girls at Prom: The Good, The Bad and The Awkward - In Photos
Diane (Executive Editor of Advocate):
This is me and my high school boyfriend, Cloud. I wasn’t openly queer yet, but I was constantly questioning (and dreaming of threesomes). Still Cloud was the first of many loves of my life and we went to every single school dance for two years in generally matching clothes that we picked out together (the worst was the year we both wore peach—shudder). This night I wore eye shadow called “ice” with white fishnet gloves and my grandmother’s mink stole (don’t hate me, I didn’t hear of PETA until I hit the lesbian world) and we had dinner at Idaho’s best restaurant (it was called Top of the Hoff, and it was 60 miles away) which was fancy pants for us.
Here's a picture of me and the boy I dated throughout high school. We're both in college now and both out! Gotta love it.

Here's a photo of me dancing with my date at my junior prom, and also one of me and my girls - I had a better time with them!
