Storyline

In the small, predominantly working class town of Inniston, Ontario, Marc Hall is a high school senior with a promising future in his chosen career as lawyer. He is bright, well liked by his classmates and teachers, and quietly supported by his hard working parents, Audy and Emily Hall. He is also openly gay and attends St. Jude, a Catholic school. His cordial relationship with those in authority in his sphere of life is put to the test when he requests that his boyfriend Jason be his date to the graduation prom. That request is flatly denied by the school's hard nosed principal, Mr. Warrick. Despite seeing his prom as an important rite of passage, Marc refuses to go if he is denied this request. He is supported by his best friend Carly, who also refuses to go if Marc doesn't go. As such, Carly's boyfriend, Beau, mounts an online "support Marc" campaign with the help of the school's computer geeks. The online campaign and Marc's appeal to the Catholic School Board catches the ... Written by Huggo

a heroic portrait of gay teen activism
19 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This uplifting comedy-drama is based on the true story of Marc Hall, the Canadian gay teen who sued the Catholic Church for not letting him bring his boyfriend to his High School Prom. Like a homo-positive "Afterschool Special," Prom Queen has a terrific cast which includes openly gay "Kids In The Hall" comedian Scott Thompson and rising star Aaron Ashmore as the blue-eyed, blue-haired rebel who boldly confronts the homophobic school board, and ultimately takes on the Catholic Church. This heartfelt story inspires and entertains as it offers up a heroic portrait of gay teen activism and portrays the true courage of his straight friends and family as they rally together to send Marc and his boyfriend to the prom.
