    from 2000-2004. Dunno if it was the fact it was in the middle of Little Israel as we liked to call it, and Jews just tend to be more liberal, especially on social issues, but I'm pretty sure this kid could've done it in front of my high school back then and received a standing ovation, so at first I thought this wasn't a big deal (and there were many openly gay students and no one cared or was bothered by it), but I sometimes forget that not everyone is lucky enough to attend such an open minded high school. So it's great to see this and great to see his fellow students are so accepting of him.
