Me and Clint Catalyst at Senior Prom 1989
copyright AMANDA BROOKS PHOTOGRAPHY 2006
Can you see the teen angst? I was full of it. Clint and I have know each other since kindergarten and we still know each other 30 years later. He was my very gay date to prom. Yes, I was and am a fag-hag and yes, I knew and he knew he was gay. This was a coupling of convenience. We both knew we would dress to each other's liking.
The dress was bought 2nd hand from an actual beauty queen contestant named Kara Hussy (yes, that's her real name) from our commercial art vo-tech class. It had a hot pink ginormous bow on the bum which I surgically removed. Those are mirrors glued to Clint's jacket.
We only stayed for pictures as the red-neck jocks of my Arkansas high school wanted to kick the "fags and the witches" asses. We high-tailed it to Memphis (a mere hour's drive from Jonesboro) to George's Disco Inferno (Gay bar that let us obviously underaged impressionable teens in to frolick with the rest of the southern fried freaks) not long after this pic was taken for our "real" prom. ahhhh...good times.
