Senior quote 💯 pic.twitter.com/ikzjmHijo0
— Maxwell Barrett (@maxxbarrett) June 9, 2015
–New Jersey high school senior Maxwell Barrett, in the Raritan High School yearbook.
“I wanted to go out with a bang,” Barrett told The Huffington Post. “I had never done sports, or clubs. I was always just an art student. I wanted to go out in a way people would remember me by!”
Barrett was apparently out to most of his friends, though not his parents. Thankfully, they loved it.
“They said it was the best one in the yearbook and that they were proud of me,” he said, adding that they’d always suspected his sexuality. The quote was “just more of a confirmation.”
