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.”
