Alan Belmont, 17, of North Central High School in Indiana made school history when he was announced as prom king, WTHR reports.
“They announced my name, and the crowd cheered so loud and it warmed my heart so much,” Belmont told WTHR. “The whole night was full of people cheering me on so seeing that they voted for something so big was incredible.”
Belmont celebrated the night with his girlfriend, Anastacia Cohen. The high school junior came out one year ago during his sophomore year.
Video online of Belmont’s coronation shows the audience greeting the new prom king with cheers and screams. Read more (4/25/17)
A Wild Man of The Woods was causing havoc day and night.
The Sun Goddess tried to stop him by making the days hot, but the Wild Man’s hairy body protected him from her burning rays.
Then the Moon God made the moon go dark, and finally the Wild Man stopped, unable to see. While he was blind in the dark, the Moon God put a silver rope around his neck, taming him.
This is why the summers are hot and why the moon goes completely dark every month. Since then, when the Moon God and Wild Man are shown together, they are a symbol of the quiet night and a reminder to people not to cause trouble after dark because the gods are still watching.
i was at work with someone i hadn’t worked with before, and he was asking me questions to get to know me better bc we’d be working closely together for a while
this guy is like two/three years older than me, so still like early twenties, he just kept asking me simple things like ‘what’s your favourite coffee’ (we’re baristas), or ‘favourite album’ kind of thing
then he went, ‘got a boyfriend? girlfriend?’
he asked both
like before i answered the first, he asked both without thinking about it, without judgement
in such a casual way that i felt totally comfortable replying ‘either, but no’
he made it so normal that i found it easy to come out to an almost-stranger that will become a regular colleague
this guy, man. restoring my faith in people with all the shit that’s going on in the world right now
