    Do you know the organizations name? Would love to support something like this if such blatant discrimination exists for those so young, brave and sure of who they are to stand up for themselves and their rights early on! GAH this whole thing has me fuming right now!

    The rule included if the two girls were both year 12's at the school and were just going to go with their best friend.

    Oh gosh have they not learnt from the media explosion when that happened at a private school in Melbourne?? Here's a link.

    http://www.smh.com.au/national/educa...109-17m29.html

    It was front page news down here for days, the whole state was outraged, pretty sure it was on ACA or Today Tonight or both.

    I'd suggest she call the media. With all of the efforts to crack down on bullying LGBT teens at school, it will not go down well.

    Sorry, not sure I have the whole gist. Did they have to bring a partner only of the opposite sex? Surely even a different sex couple of a same school wouldn't register as going as a 'couple' and would just attend? Or Is this about listing 'couples' for seating etc? My formal was much more laid back than this I'm thinking!

    My formal wasn't like this but I know some schools do the whole arrive on the red carpet and walk in individually or as a couple so perhaps two girls walking along the red carpet is the issue?

    My daughter took a female as her date, and also her best friend took a female for her date. The dates didnt go to the school. The school had no problem with this at all. They had pics taken and no issue at all.
