High School athlete Craig Cassey is gay, but never mind that.  What is important to note is he was voted Prom King at his High School over the weekend.  He had opted not to go to the prom with his boyfriend so as not to upset his mother or anyone else so he went with a female pal and so did his boyfriend Carl.  What he didn’t expect was to find that he would be crowned Prom King that night.  Pennsylvania is a pretty cool state.

He writes, “I was crowned prom king – a moment meaningful in many ways, mostly for what it symbolizes: acceptance. Winning prom king amongst a crew of 7 potential male candidates shows that my school is not only tolerant of openly gay students but is accepting! My good friend Molly won with me and we slow danced to cheers from all sides, congratulating us and urging us to kiss. Don’t worry, we didn’t. There were no shouts of “Homo,” no negative remarks, just congratulations and “bro hugs” and pats on the back – truly a testament to my school’s consistently improving climate.”
