Derrick Martin talks about getting kicked out for being gay
By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: Derrick Martin got me thinking about my prom way back in the 80s. I asked the cutest girl I knew to go with me and she said “yes.” She wore a sexy red dress and I had a white tuxedo with little red details.
She was my girlfriend for awhile then after the prom, she broke up with me. I was pissed but deep down, I didn’t care. I was gay! But there was no way I could’ve taken who I really wanted to take without causing a riot.
Wouldn’t have even considered it.
Today, most kids still don’t – especially kids who live in states like Georgia. But Derrick Martin wanted to take his boyfriend, Richard Goodman, to his prom last month and did so despite a wave of controversy. His determination and the surrounding publicity got him kicked out of his house by his parents.
