“The reason we wanted to make this prom story into a film, I think so many people can relate to that story,” Lance said as a guest on the podcast episode. “So many people in the LGBT community, their prom night was the night they were like, ‘Oh, wait a minute. This can’t happen anymore.’ This was the catalyst for me that made me start to accept myself, which took a long time after that, but that was definitely the first little straw that broke.”
When it came for that ill-fated prom night, well, we’ll let Danielle tell the story.
“Lance and I had a hotel room booked and I had a vision for what that night was going to be,” Danielle said, “and Lance was very nervous about what my vision for that night was going to be.”
Things, as you’ve probably guessed by now, did not go according to Danielle’s plan.
