While I try to figure out how to upload all the pictures I’ve taken at ICCS to the NECSI website, my deci-PZ of readers might enjoy this story. As a Prom King myself (no, really) I take a special pleasure in announcing that Davis Senior High School of Davis, California has elected a gay couple to homecoming royalty.
â€œPeople were so excited for us,â€ [Kiernan] Gatewood said of the coupleâ€™s victory, announced a few weeks ago. â€œWe were a little surprised, but Davis â€¦â€
â€œIs a liberal town,â€ interrupts his boyfriend of four months, [Brandon] Raphael. â€œGo 10 miles in any other direction and youâ€™ll get some other feeling.â€
Unlike my high school, Davis does not put names on its homecoming ballots; the two princes won in a purely write-in election.
