PHOTO: Too-Cute West Point Cadet And Boyfriend Gussy-Up For Freshman Formal

71824_421698887908327_365106093_n PHOTO: Knights Out, West Point’s LGBT alumni association, posted this photo montage on Facebook of a member of the academy’s LGBT Spectrum group and his boyfriend , taken at the Yearling Winter Weekend dance last weekend. (“Yearlings” are sophomores at the legendary military academy.)

We’re heartened that this young man doesn’t have to face “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”—he’ll never have to invent a girlfriend, change pronouns or hide who he is to his fellow cadets.

As the Facebook poster wrote above the photos, “this is progress… in which we can be proud.”

    Nice. Change happens slowly most of the time. Old ideas and attitudes die with their creators and the new becomes the norm. I am just happen that I was able to see the change happening in my lifetime. Good luck to these two.

    This is awesome. The world needs more awesome stuff!

    Just the sweetest thing. I wish this handsome couple a long, happy life together. I am so glad I’ve been able to see these things come about. Even ten years ago, I could not have imagined it. It’s wonderful.

    I think it is great that they can do this. A very handsome couple and the best to them

    This is an absolutely revolutionary scene. To me, about equal to the Berlin Wall coming down. I have a friend who would probably still be at the Air Force Academy instead of doing porn at sean cody, if he could have taken this route openly.

  • mz.sam

    Awwww…these two babes make an uber-adorable, yummie sandwich!

  • MK Ultra

    OMG they are too adorable!
    Best of luck to the gents )

    I never thought I would live to see this happening. I am so thrilled. And I am doubly thrilled for them. Be happy, guys.

    I can’t decide what’s lovelier, the arm-in-arm coming toward us or the hand-in-hand stroll away in the snow.

  • johnconroy5

    Heartened is the perfect word queery :-)

    This is very very sweet and has likely put a smile on all of our faces, good on those boys for presenting themselves at this event as a proud and visibly loving couple, long may they be happy and well
