Aaron Fricke made nationwide headlines in 1980 by winning his right to go to prom in Cumberland, RI. The case has direct bearing on today's school climate of bullying. Hear Aaron recount his court case, the reactions of his family, friends, and school mates. He describes and the court case, plus much more, in his well-received auto-biography, Reflections of A Rock Lobster: Growing Up Gay. Soon to be adapted as a play by the Boston Children's Museum. A story as relevant, even moreso, today as it was 30 years ago. Join Dave, Leesa, Dr. Ray, and Fred. We'll update LGBT news relevant to gay youth and parents of these youth.
