I already knew about Constance McMillen — the girl whose school decided to cancel the prom rather than let her show up in her tux with her girlfriend — but there’s tons of teenagers to be proud of in Gary Lapon’s article, Why can’t Constance bring her date?
I’m watching a CNN interview Lapon linked with a 10-year-old who wouldn’t say the pledge of allegiance (since gay people don’t have liberty and justice for all) and his dad and it is so awesome. I want to give that kid such a big hug. And his dad! He is just so full of bemused pride.
