It was good to see that you covered the "gay prom night" ("Putting Prom Night in a New Light," Feb. 16). Michael Quintanilla seems to have caught the spirit of an affair that was both serious and a good-natured sendup of the standard high school prom. The pictures accompanying the article were another story.
Mr. Quintanilla wrote: "While most of the guys donned tuxedos (emphasis added) . . . a few, natch, partied in dolled-up drag." Two of the three pictures, however, stressed the minority who attended in drag. This just reinforces the stereotype of gays being ersatz women.
