When the Broadway cast of The Prom performed a musical number from the show at the 2018 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, it marked the first time in the parade's history that a same-sex kiss had been included and broadcast during the festivities. Although the response was overwhelmingly positive, in a case of life imitating art, Macy's received some homophobic backlash for the inclusion. They responded to this with a statement to Entertainment Weekly magazine: "At Macy's, we are guided by our corporate values of Acceptance, Respect, Integrity and Giving Back. We hope that viewers found the 92nd Annual Parade entertaining with its traditional mix of signature balloons, fantastic floats and performances from the nation's best marching bands and musical acts. We look forward to next year." See more »

We have come to show this community that gay people, and gay positive icons such as myself, are made of the same flesh and blood as they are.

It is definitely cheesy but it's a lovely feel good movie. Despite the movie's cheesiness and how it spoon feeds a lot, it's beautiful and enjoyable due to its nice story and its important cause and life messages. And to me that's more than enough to love and enjoy it. Meryl Streep and Nicole Kidman are literally perfect. The colors are catchy and nice, the music is awesome as well. The Prom is a cheesy entertaining beautiful emotional movie. Give it a try.
