Over in Hudson, a Gay Prom King and Queen

Dan Shaw over at Rural Intelligence has done a wonderful write-up on Hudson's Gay Pride weekend June 19-20. The small community of about 7,000 is on the Hudson River, not too far from Lenox, Lee and Great Barrington.

Charlie Ferrusi and Tim Howard

"Charlie Ferrusi and Tim Howard, the openly gay Hudson High School seniors who ran for Prom King and Queen and won by a landslide in a vote by the student body, made history and headlines a week or so ago, and they have the gay community in Hudson bursting with pride. Well timed, too, as this Sunday, a day-long-plus celebration, Hudson Pride, kicks off with a parade, to be followed by a roster of activities." - Rural Intelligence
