4th of July Feel Good

July 4, 2010 § 3 Comments

Good news! (Notice that I’m so overjoyed I had to add a new category — “This Makes Me Happy.”) At Hudson High School in upstate New York, two senior boys were crowned prom king and queen.

Amazing. In the same year that Constance McMillen was sent to a fake prom and had to take legal action to defend her rights, something like this happens. Obviously this doesn’t negate all the fucked up shit that has happened and continues to happen to LGBTQ teens across America, but it’s certainly refreshing.

So I say congratulations to Charlie Ferrusi and Timmy Howard. And I hope you had a great time at the Most Important and Magical Night of Your Teenage Life (as the awesome Jamie at The Seventeen Magazine Project has coined it).

    This is amazing. I didn’t even hear about this and I do my best to stay on top of LGBTQIA issues.

    Hopefully schools will follow this trend, rather than the other one.

    Yeah, it’s super interesting because for a while there with Prop 8, the pseudo-prom for the mentally handicapable and lesbian couple, failure of legalized gay marriage in Maine I was starting to feel a little bit like we might be going backwards.
