Here's another reason why I'm not fond of the movie, Call Me By Your Name. Here are two normal gay kids in a relationship, they're both the same age, and they are being denied the same things straight kids get in high school. And while Hollywood is praising and giving awards to a movie with a dysfunctional relationship where a barely legal gay kid gets involved in a sexual relationship with an older man, this story about these gay kids who just want to be prom kings is totally ignored.
Two gay students have been stopped from running for prom king and king at their school’s prom.
Joel Lerner and Carter Hebert, who are both 18, were elected to the royal court at Chattahoochee High School in Atlanta, Georgia.
But the school told them that its procedures prevent them from running to be crowned king and king.
Here's more. There are photos of them and more details.
Illinois Will Teach LGBT History
Here's something I never thought I would see happen.
The state looks set to approve a bill that would require all public elementary and high schools to teach “the significant role of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals in society.”

Senator Doug Jones's Gay Son Inspires Him
This is a nice article about a dad who is an Alabama Senator talking about how his openly gay son inspires him.
“Has it affected me? Absolutely. Everything affects you, but obviously a child affects you more than anything else. I’m happy to do that, I’m happy to be there to defend him — when he can be defended, as we always say, when he can be defended.”
You can read more about hit, here. There are several pics of his son, too.
