Two year 11 girls headed to their dance last night in a rainbow double-decker bus in a bid to make a statement over same-sex couples attending following the dramas caused stateside.

Amy Stimpson and Topaz Sattaur will attend the dance at Shenley Brook End school in the rainbow bus courtesy of Q:alliance which is a local support group for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people. The bus has also been sponsored by local nightclub Pink Punters.

Speaking to Pink Paper Stimpson said about how the idea came about: “The prom was coming up and I didn’t like the idea of a limo and wanted to do something meaningful.

I hope this inspires other teenagers to do the same in their schools,”

Partner Sattaur added her appreciation to the school in allowing them to arrive in their unique style ““I’m really glad the school is happy for Rainbow to take us to our prom. It’s an amazing opportunity I’ll remember all my life. Everyone is so supportive, it’s great!”

Amy runs the youth group for Q:alliance and the bus was offered to her in gratification for all her hard work.
