For the ninth year in a row, The National Museum of Mexican Art sponsored the Queer Prom.
More than 250 youth attended the festivities, which included balloons, glitter, lollipops and condoms. Also, unlike a traditional prom, this one featured the crowning of a king, queen and queer.
In perhaps another sign that standards and norms are becoming blurred, there was an unusual combination of music styles. The dance floor was completely packed when the DJ played a set that included a bachata dance and rounded out with a dance mix of an Adele song. Host Emmanuel Garcia said, "The future is queer and brownpow!"
