It is with great pleasure that we are able to announce the triumphant return of BME‘s ModProm! Everybody’s favorite excuse to break out the seersucker and classy it up for one special evening is back for another year, this time in one of downtown Toronto’s premier party establishments (the specifics of which we will announce shortly).
Make no mistake, though — this isn’t just a night to play dress-up. This is a real prom, complete with tearful, mascara-smearing exchanges in the ladies’ room, awards (at the moment, the superdelegates are split 50/50 on Prom King) and the chaperonage nonpareil of renowned family man Bob Saget! (No, we haven’t seen the Aristocrats, why do you ask?) As if that’s not enough, you can also look forward to delicious food, an open bar and, above all else, a night with friends and family that will be impossible to forget.
Check this page frequently for new information — advance ticket sales will be announced shortly! Until then, pop your zits, buy a corsage and prepare for June 28, 2008! The war is over — tonight, we dance, prom-style!

Travel & Accommodations
The two main airports to fly into are Toronto’s Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and Toronto’s City Centre (YTZ). There is also Hamilton (YHM) and Buffalo (BUF), NY. Significantly cheaper flights can be found by flying into BUF and then taking either the bus or the train.
Inexpensive flights from the NYC area to down town Toronto
There is a new bus service called Mega Bus which offers service from all over the east coast and can get you from NYC to Toronto for 26 dollars round trip. This is assigned seating so if you’re going to take the bus, book as soon as possible!
Any hotels in the downtown core will work perfectly. Remember that it is the end of Pride Week so hotels will be selling out quickly. I will be posting block room rates shortly but if you find a good deal before then, book it!
This year would not be as fabulous as it’s going to be if it wasn’t for the most amazing donations from sponsors around the globe. So far we have tons of goodies from the following:
