This prom is being held at the Gay and Lesbian Fund here in Colorado Springs on the 26th of April. I hope for it to be educational and fun for the entire community. We, my committee and I, are bringing in pamphlets on safer sex, tobacco prevention, drug prevention, alcohol prevention, and we're discussing STD's and making people aware of each topic. All at our prom.
I don't want this night to be just fun and games. I want to send people home knowing that somewhere in the heart of this conservative town, there are people here willing to educate, to support, and to help.
While my committee and I raise money, we put on bake sales, we speak to children about GLBT issues, and we continue to do research.
