Constance McMillen lives in a wicked little town- in a plot stolen right out of a John Hughes film, Candace was duped out of going to the prom and Molly Ringwald wasn’t there to save the day.

On today’s show blogger and activist Phil Reese joins us to take a look at the bigot’s prom and all the hot news stories: Schools duped by anti-gay propaganda, amazing young man who sings like Whitney, and a social network to rag on your coworkers and another to celebrate the most fabulis gay men.

    I can’t believe the whole prom issue has turned into such a mess, even after all the press it’s received. You’d think that school would have just rescinded the cancellation and tried to make good; but apparently that’s just not how things work in the good ol’ south. Crazy.

    Phil is quite the intelligent guy and I liked his views on the issues you guys discussed. I’m looking forward to hearing more from him in future shows, and seeing more of what he has to say on the site.

    Oh and BTW I not only went to my reunion last year, I helped plan it. :) And as far as cruising is concerned, there wasn’t much cruising to do. Except for the one guy I always had the hots for who actually got HOTTER as he got older. Damn him for getting married!!!!!

    I’m not allowed to bring a guy to my prom either. It really doesn’t bother me that much, I’m sure if I made a big deal about it I could bring a guy. But since it’s an all guys school, the chances are if I brought a guy he’d get beaten up anyway :/

    I feel bad for that girl, but I’d say if she just turned up with a girl, and didn’t say it beforehand there wouldn’t have been a problem. People would hardly notice. If our proms are anything to go by, then half the people would be so shit-faced drunk they wouldn’t know if it was a guy or a girl anyway 😀

    I took a boy as my date to my prom in conservative christian Orange County in 1989. The school tried to do everything in their power to stop us. They made us sign a waiver saying we wouldn’t kiss, hold hands, or touch in any way. When we got there we ignored this and school security tried to stop us but Disneyland (the venue) stopped them because they had just lost a major court case in which they prevented a same sex couple from dancing together in Videopolis. It was a hellish ordeal and we received taunts and threats the entire night. The DJ from a huge LA rock station even made fun of us over the mic.

  5. I’m looking forward to hearing more from Phil! (And seeing more of him wouldn’t be so bad, either!) 😉
