MIAMI BEACH, Fla. — Many parents are upset after a high school prom was held in the same building as a porn convention in Miami Beach, Fla.

CBS Miami reported that the event took place at the Miami Beach Convention Center, the same venue hosting the Exxxotica Expo.

School organizers at Miami Beach Senior High School told CBS Miami they didn’t have much of a choice other than to hold the prom at that location.

“We do not hold our proms in venues such as hotels for the safety of our children and to discourage drinking,” said Gwen Zaldivar, the school’s activities director. “Therefore this was the only available location and It’s easy to control the students are safe.”
