Voted the cutest couple in their high school and now headed to prom together. A typical American story, except they are gay.   Yes, going viral in the last few days is the inspiring story of Dylan Meehan and Brad Taylor, two high school sweethearts.  Accepted fully at Mt. Carmel High School, their story is one that I hope will be translated fully into the  entire American landscape one day.

It was a dream that I had when I was in high school and it is one that all LGBT youth have, to love who you love, freely and openly.
