Lesbian students get day in court ... royal court, that is ... at Minn. high school's pep rally

Lesbian students get day in court _ royal court, that is _ at Minn. high school's pep rally - 1/31/2011 5:54:05 PM | Newser


'It felt amazing,' said Shelton, adding that she was too nervous to notice dozens rise to give her a standing ovation as she walked in with Lindstrom. 'I think we were too focused on getting to the stage.'

If there were any boos, they were drowned about by supporters. 'I feel so much better,' Lindstrom said while surrounded by friends after the rally.
Kids standing up to applaud kids just being who they are when, a generation ago those kids would (probably) have been outcasts and almost certainly not celebrated: that's reason for cheer on an otherwise glum morning. In little ways, humans are learning to get over themselves and just get along.
