Best Couple

best coupleMy dad passed on this really sweet NPR segment about two young women who were voted “Best Couple” at their high school, and their families’ homophobia.

I wanted to win best couple, but I didn’t know how people [would] react. I thought they would discriminate. But Deoine and Maribel went around to every class telling them to vote for us. When the papers came out for people to vote, it said “best couple: pick a boy and a girl.” Deoine asked if I voted and I said “no,” but then I was thinking about President Obama and I told myself “one vote could make a difference,” so I scratched out boy and I put girl.

Despite my many attempts, I can’t seem to embed the audio in this post, so head over to the NPR-WNYC site to listen or read the transcript. Enjoy!
