This story, published first (I believe; apologies if my research is entirely inaccurate!) on Outsports, is a piece about a gay couple going to the prom in West Virginia. Somehow, it’s that West Virginia angle that grabs you. That takes some cojones. Or maybe not, anymore. Even in West Virginia. All I know is that it sure as hell wouldn’t have happened in my southern hometown back in the dark ages when I had my high school prom which, for the record, I did not attend.
One of the young men will attend Wilson College in Chambersburg, Pa. in the fall. Having intimate knowledge of that institution, I’ll keep a weather eye out.
