Bakersfieldcalifornia1994

Auto Straddle is collecting prom pictures:

So this girl Constance McMillen wanted to take a girl to prom, and wear a tux, and the principal was like hell to the no, and then the ACLU got involved, and then the school just decided it would be better to cancel prom altogether. Why are they so afraid of how cute girls look in menswear?...We have a feeling, even though we are old, that some girls are bringing girls to homecoming/prom/fancy-wear day dances these days...Are you one of those girls/boys? Well let’s celebrate those photos everyone is so f*cking afraid of!

The above picture is captioned, "Bakersfield, California. 1994."
