PHOTOS: Adorable West Virginia Same-Sex Prom Couple Wins The Internet

Michael Martin, a West Virginian senior at Mussleman High School recently became a hit on the web when he and his boyfriend if four months Logan Westrope unabashedly attended Martin’s senior prom.

Martin asked Logan to be his date after Logan finished his work-shift at the anti-gay fast-food chain, Chick Fil-A. Michael gave him a bag with a chicken sandwich inside and asked, “Are you a chicken or will you go to the prom with me?” Logan “easily and gladly said yes.”

Though Logan felt nervous about how Martin’s classmates would react to his boyfriend, they didn’t hear any negative comments. A lot of students (especially female ones) would come up to compliment how cute and great they looked together. They ended up slow dancing all night long.

The couple has become popular not only for their bravery — a 2013 poll found that 70 percent of West Virginians thought same-sex marriage should be illegal — but also for their academic and athletic prowess. Martin plays on the school’s soccer, swim, and tennis teams and plans to major in Environmental Sustainability; Logan plays tennis and will major in meteorology.

Now let’s enjoy their special night together with these adorable photos taken during their prom night.

  1. Dear lord, that’s awful. If I were to ever be like that, I would hope someone would have the courtesy (for everyone else in the room if not just me) to take me out behind the barn and shoot me. I call myself a “fag hag” but christ, I’m more like a drag queen. Without the penis. 

    Although, I will say, now that I’ve moved from Minneapolis and away from everyone I know, I MISS MY GAYS (ha, had to do it). Though after more than a year in Ohio, I have zero friends. Missing my gay housemate who is replaced by my religious mother who believes faggotz go to hell is AWFULER THAN THIS VIDEO D:
    Also, to make my “fag hag” self-label less terrible, I don’t even know what the hell “Sex and (In?) the City” in about, who’s in it, or what the HELL she’s talking about. And who calls gay friends “girlfriend”? Oh god I want to punch her. 
    okay, I’m seething over a funny video. wtf lol

  2. her behavior is that of someone who is socially awkward and is trying really hard to make friends. its actually really sad and i wouldnt personally make fun of her. its better to just make friends with her and politely let her know what’s offensive and how she can enjoy better social success.

  3. Aw, you’re from Minneapolis?  That’s where I live!  What’s your favorite gay bar in the city :)?

  4. The Saloon for sure – more hijinks have gone on there than I can remember (not the least of which was being kicked out for smoking weed in the bathroom with two boys). The 90’s is fun as long ass there’s not a bachelorette party going on upstairs during the drag show. UGH, hate those. But I MISS MPLS SO MUCH!!!

  5. And for you straight males – I dont know what the masculine version of above is. The number one hated phrase from straight “Lesbian supportive (barf)” males that enrages us ?

                                      “Hey ! I love women, I’m a lesbian just like you guys”

  6. I would not call this girl a fag hag. She’s just annoying.
