18 Photos Of Queer Teens At Prom That Will Give You Butterflies

"Best night of my life."

As the school year comes to a close, high school seniors across the country are attending the dance they’ve been waiting for—the prom.

Prom is a night for graduating students to dress to impress, cut a rug, and mark the end of one chapter and the beginning of a new one with friends and sometimes a significant other. But for some LGBT teens, the special night can be nerve wrecking. LGBT students often have to worry about whether they will be harassed at the dance or banned from it altogether.

Not these teens.

LGBT high school seniors across the country are taking to social media to share their prom experiences and photos with their same-sex dates—and it’s truly heartwarming, inspiring, and a testament to how far LGBT inclusion has come over the years.

Here are a few of our favorites.
