QUIZ: Which “The Prom” Character Are You & Why Is It the Mom Who Hates Gays? What's Wrong With You?

by Justin Ayer. @justayer (Instagram), @justinayer (Twitter).

Ryan Murphy’s film adaptation of The Prom hits Netflix today, with its exciting, candy-colored message of inclusion and love in tow! Wanna find out which character you are?


We actually already know by the way - you do not support the LGBTQ community and are therefore basically PTA President Mrs. Greene. But hey, feel free to take the quiz anyway, jerk.


If you could travel to any decade to attend prom you’d pick:

  1. 70s! Disco baby!

  2. 80s! Big hair and even bigger dresses!

  3. 90s, specifically 1994, when the U.S. military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy was enacted. Ok, weird that you chose this one, but keep going.

You are repainting your room, the color you choose is:

  1. Baby Blue.

  2. Charcoal.

  3. Rainbow - haha, just kidding, you hate that shit. Wait, I was joking... but you actually hate rainbows?! Why do you hate rainbows? Oh, right.

Just so you know, even if you choose A or B, it’s OBVIOUS you’re really choosing C. You’re JUST like the mom. Shame on you. Keep going though, maybe you can redeem yourself.


You’re in NYC and decide to get ice cream at Big Gay Ice Cream, your favorite flavor is:

  1. Nutella. Yummy!

  2. Creamiscle!!!!!

  3. Omg did you just out loud say “Yeah right I wouldn’t go to Big Gay Ice Cream”?! You’re horrible.


You wanna listen to a showtune, so you put on:

  1. Seasons of Love!

  2. Anything from Mean Girls!

  3. Something from Rocky The Musical. Really? You WOULD pick that.


Do you even have the capability to love? Last chance. This one is REALLY easy, but knowing you, you will probably fuck it up.


Your two friends aren’t allowed to go to Prom because they are in a same sex relationship, so you:

  1. Petition the school to let everyone go to Prom no matter if they’re same sex or not.

  2. Get the whole school to boycott the Prom.

  3. HAHAHAHAHAHA YOU SUCK SO MUCH!!!!! YOU WOULD BE THE PERSON WHO MADE THE SCHOOL NOT LET THEM GO TO PROM! YOU'RE AN AWFUL HUMAN, YOU ABSOLUTE MRS. GREENE.


Mostly As: Lol ok, sure...

Mostly Bs: Ok stop lying now, we know you chose all C’s

Mostly Cs: Fucking knew it. What is wrong with you? You have some serious inner soul searching to do, and honestly, we’re hoping you do it.
