A school in Florida elected a couple with Down syndrome as homecoming royalty.
An Illinois school elected a gay homecoming king and a lesbian homecoming queen.
In New Hampshire, they have a transgender homecoming king.
As we grown-ups work to confront entrenched and shitty biases that keep people from really seeing and accepting each others, the kids are figuring this shit out too. Not to say that social justice work is irrelevant (hardly!) but that it really does work to change the world, tiny piece by tiny piece. Continuing to bust our asses to make the world a more accepting place has real results, and here's a lovely bit of proof.
The kids, they are okay.
Also, happy Ada Lovelace Day!
