Gay West Point Cadet Escorts His Boyfriend to Winter Formal

While hardly a major story in many ways, but as the Facebook page of Knights Out notes, the images above are a sign of progress:

This, ladies and gentleman, is progress at an Academy in which we can be proud. A member of the Academy's Spectrum group and his boyfriend at Yearling Winter Weekend last weekend.

The added enjoyment factor comes from knowing that the photos will drive vitriolic hate merchants like Elaine Donnelly and Tony Perkins absolutely berserk.  It is hard to believe the positive changes that have occurred.  When I was the age of the young men in the photos, being gay was still classified as a form of mental illness.  It does get getter, albeit not quickly enough.
