Prom is one of the most important night of any youth's life because it symbolizes the end of school and the beginning of life as a young adult, so it is only fitting that all youth have a chance to show who they truly are as this LGBT prom photo series beautifully portrays.

Unfortunately, not all youth get that chance because there are some schools that have non-progressive attitudes towards gender and sexuality and enforce strict policies on these kids in their own high school proms. However, The Boston Alliance of Gay Lesbian Youth (BAGLY) holds an annual prom every year for young LGBT students who are forced to feel like outsiders and give them the special night they deserve. Captured by photographer Zoe Perry-Wood, the LGBT prom photo series is poignant and touching.
