Prom is not just an exciting night for a high school student -- it's become a bonafide rite-of-passage.
Of course, in a day and age when growing up lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) can be an increasingly volatile experience, teens who come out while still in high school are perhaps more commendable than ever.
That's why HuffPost Gay Voices hopes to honor prom season for our LGBT teen audience in a special way -- and we'd like to hear from you!
Send us a photo of you with your same-sex prom date dressed to the nines, along with some details. ALL ENTRIES MUST include your first name, the first name of your date, along with the location and calendar date of the dance itself. A short (6 lines or less) anecdote telling us about the experience would be great, too!
Send your submissions to GayVoices@huffingtonpost.com and have your prom photo featured on the HuffPost Gay Voices page next week!
DISCLAIMER: By sending us your photo and anecdote, you are giving us permission to consider publishing both on our page.
