Marjory Stoneman Douglas High students Cameron Kasky and David Hogg, who have become nationally-known gun control activists following the Parkland, Florida shooting that took so many of their classmates, tweeted a photo yesterday captioned “Prom 2018”, suggesting that the pair is attending their prom as a couple.

The Sun Sentinel reports:
The school’s senior class is organizing an “over the top” prom at the Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort. The prom will be both romantic and glamorous while paying tribute to the students who lost their lives Feb. 14. There will be a memorial near the entrance of the prom’s ballroom.
Kasky is openly gay. Hogg is not.
And the reaction has been very positive.
