Prom is about more than corsages and boutonnieres, promposals and after-parties. It's an event that teens are claiming as a way not only to have fun with friends but to also express their creativity and their identities.

Learn about the first gay and lesbian teen couples to insist on the legal right to bring their dates to prom. Discover how modern prom fashions are pushing the boundaries of what guys and girls can wear to the big night out. You'll also get tips from high school graduates about dealing with prom pressures—and how to protect your physical and emotional health while you celebrate.
