In a clear sign that our movement is making progressive despite our many fits and sputters comes this absolutely lovely story of two high school kids, a gay couple, who were named gay homecoming princes:
For what appears to be the first time in school history, the Davis Senior High student body has elected a gay couple into homecoming royalty. With each boasting a white sash declaring his title as "Prince," the two 16-year-olds rode through the city of Davis on a recent Friday afternoon in the school's annual homecoming parade.
They stood in the back of a pickup truck, arm-in-arm, smiling warmly despite the rain.
"People were so excited for us," Gatewood said of the couple's victory, announced a few weeks ago. "We were a little surprised, but Davis ..."
"Is a liberal town," interrupts his boyfriend of four months, Raphael. "Go 10 miles in any other direction and you'll get some other feeling."
How adorable is that?
Of course, the anti-gays are frothing at the mouth and spewing invective. Yeah, well that's their problem. We are a little too busy spreading love and equality to be consumed by their hatred.
