Idea branched off from Trans-prom 2008

So, I was going throught the centers site ( an lgbt center on like... west 13th stt in New york) and I found out there was a trans prom in 2008.

I don't think there's been one since has there?

Well, I wanted to start something called Trans-querade in New Jersey... Good idea? bad idea?

It'll be like a masquerade ball almost,

I get symbolic though... The masks symbolize the masks that we wore on the outside of our true selves.

I'd really like to get this together!

Feedback would be great!

I e-mailed Jersey shore pflag and the pride center of new jersey, My GSA friends and adviser said it'd be a bright idea for me to try to get some sponsors and if anyone lives in New Jersey and would like to help out, just Inbox me :)

-feedback please!!! :D

Vick.

I wish my area had an alternative prom D:

If your trans they're still buttheads here and they make you sign a waiver stating your going to the prom with someone the same sex and you won't complain if you get bullied.

Sounds pretty cool...like it would be a lotta fun.

"...they make you sign a waiver stating your going to the prom with someone the same sex and you won't complain if you get bullied." -Vick

So, uhhhh... are they saying bullying is okay... you just need to be aware that it could happen? And if you get stomped into the ground - oh, well...you were warned. ???? :huh:

That's pretty much what the schools saying.

Which in a way, is illegal because of the HIB (Harassment, Intimidation and bullying) Laws.

But that's what one of my friends said,

He's trans too and he wanted to take a girl to prom.....

He had to signa waiver and he just ended up not going.

Good idea Vick. See what Ellen has to offer from her experiences.

Signing a waiver of responsibility is ridiculous. You may as well have a waiver to sign for not being fashionable enough or looking like a geek or whatever any bully can think of for bullying.

Vick, the "Theme " of last years R. O. S. M. Y prom was "Carnavale " yes , we had an antique Pop corn machine , masks , lots of ribbons and Mardi Gras type stuff. I'm going to suggest you contact Beth Panellas here in Richmond Virginia at Richmond Organnazation ofsexual Youth and disscuss a Prom even up in New Jersey. She can be reached at ROSMY.org

I also have a local phone , but you need to P- M me on it ........... ellen
