Students at Long Reach High School in Columbia are readying their attire for prom night: tuxedos, evening gowns and corsages during the event; sweatshirts, hoodies and flip-flops afterward. Like many county juniors and seniors, Long Reach students will get gussied up for their May 3 formal gala in Baltimore - then dress down and head to a popular prom night after-party. Launched by the PTA Council of Howard County's Project Safe, the After Prom events are staged independently at each of the county's 12 high schools as an alternative to the private post-prom parties where alcohol and drug use could arise.

As a supporter of the Fairness For All Marylander's Act, I want to thank The Sun for running Kevin Rector's article, "Transgender student named prom queen at Baltimore high school" (May 28). When Destiny Hartis graduates, leaves Baltimore and crosses over into Anne Arundel County to attend a nursing program, all of her basic rights will travel with her thanks to the Fairness For All Marylanders Act. Prior to this update to our anti-discrimination law, Ms. Harris would have lost the rights she had at home in Baltimore City the moment she crossed over into Anne Arundel County.

- The American Civil Liberties Union of Mississippi is suing to force a school district to host a prom it canceled after a lesbian student asked to bring her girlfriend and wear a tuxedo. The lawsuit was filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Oxford on behalf of 18-year-old Constance McMillen. The Itawamba County School District said it wouldn't host the April 2 prom at Itawamba Agricultural High School after the ACLU demanded McMillen be allowed to escort her girlfriend. District officials said they hoped private citizens would sponsor a prom instead.

The dread of finding yet another dress. The sinking feeling as another disc jockey spins that song, again. Another ride in another stretch limo - yawn. The prom? The problems! The Big Night has turned into a series of increasingly smaller nights for those who don't have the stereotypical prom problem - ending up without a date - but the opposite: going to too many proms and discovering the law of diminishing returns. "Proms are overrated," says Kelly Soth, a senior at Roland Park Country School who when the season finally ends will have attended three proms.

Destiny Hartis had made up her mind. She would be elected Digital Harbor High School's prom queen at the school's senior prom on May 15, she remembers thinking that night -- even if it meant spending part of the dance gathering votes from her fellow classmates. "It was my day," said Hartis, 20, who attended the end-of-year event with her cousin, Kerstin Jones, in a long blue dress. "I was going to win. " And she did -- becoming the Baltimore high school's first transgender student in faculty memory to walk away with the prom queen's crown and sash.

Alexis Carter decided to go the unconventional route for her prom, picking a winged-look that emulated a dress worn by her idol, singer Rihanna. Make that her former idol. The 16-year-old from Baltimore, who picked the dress for a Hollywood-themed prom, according to Fox 45 News , was immediately met with scorn for the look on social media. Carter said the dress, which features a plunging neckline and big wings, was a hit at the prom, but when she posted a photo of it on her Twitter feed, @Lexxy_Charms, it was immediately met with strong reactions, including the not-so-flattering trending hashtag #PromBat.

LONDON -- The Last Night of the Proms became a First Night for Women on Saturday when Marin Alsop walked onto the stage of the massive and festively adorned Royal Albert Hall and made a bit of history in this history-drenched country. “A lot has been made of me being the first woman to conduct the Last Night,” Alsop told the crowd of about 6,000 inside the hall and masses more watching on giant screens in Hyde Park and locations in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. She was cut off by a storm of cheers and applause before continuing: “I'm incredibly honored and proud, but I have to say it's amazing that there can still be a first for women in 2013.” That's the message that Alsop, music director of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and Sao Paolo Symphony Orchestra, kept telling the British press in the days leading up to what is one of the most popular annual events on the culture calendar here.
