So long, cheesy song lyrics. There's a new trend when it comes to senior quotes: thoughtful, personal messages that get people talking (in a good way, of course.) We've had a lot of favorites this year so far—from the girl who called out her school's totally unfair dress code policy, to the one who managed to tackle the gender pay gap, feminism, and LGBT rights in one sentence.
And now, we have another one to add to the hall of fame. Maxwell Barrett, 18, used his senior quote to confirm to his parents that he's gay. "Of course I dress well, I didn't spend all that time in the closet for nothing," the quote, credited to "Unknown," read. This was his way of officially letting his mom and dad know what he says they probably already knew anyway.
Of course, there was a moment when the quote almost didn't make it into the book. He explained that a yearbook supervisor initially told him the quote had too much "shock value" and they were not going to run the quote. But luckily, it ended up making it in there after all, which is good because we'd have a totally different, strongly-worded article on this if that were the case!Related:
