A friend and I recently started a photographic journalism project on queer youth, entitled "We Are the Youth." We attended the Gay Prom in Yonkers, NY last night to shoot some portraits, talk to some kids, hand out flyers, that kind of junk. Although the project is about queer youth, this (chaperone) dude was too good to be true, and I had to take his photo.
Here are some selects from the prom.
