Coverboy: Moises

From openly gay prom king to dance instructor, sporty Moises is tearing it up

He may be only 18, but Moises has hit the ground running. Not many openly gay teens can boast the title of prom king. ”I came out my sophomore year,” says the Alexandria native who attended Edison High School. ”No one ever treated me any differently.” Making the transition out of high school, Moises is still living at home and going to community college, but hopes to soon study photography at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond. Meanwhile, he’s also tearing it up with swimming, lacrosse and teaching dance. If you want to hit him up for some moves, look for Moises at Town Danceboutique or Fur Nightclub.
