Have you seen this story yet? It’s so perfect, you’re going to just SOB. Las Vegas high school student Anthony Martinez went on Twitter the other day saying he wished a boy would ask him to prom. He didn’t care whether it was an official date or not – he just wanted a date to the prom.
His best friend Jacob Lescenski (who is straight) saw the tweet and decided to ask Anthony to be his straight date, by way of an absolutely ADORABLE poster he and his friends made.
“I decided on going to prom alone because my original date idea didn’t work out so well. Then one night I saw Anthony, who is my best friend, tweeting about wanting a date.
“So, I came up with the poster idea, asked my friend Mia to make it and asked him that next day. No one knew about it except for me, my friend Jamie and Mia who made the poster. It was a giant surprise to everyone, especially Anthony!”
After lunch, Martinez walked up the flight of stairs on his way to class, where he was met by Lescenski and his big-ass sign which read “You’re hella gay, I’m hella str8, you’re like my brother, so be my d8?”
Said Martinez: “I saw this giant poster and assumed it was for another person—until I read ‘You’re hella gay.'”
Tweeted Anthony: “Guess who got asked to prom! BY A STRAIGHT GUY (Army pants). he’s my best friend, and a real man given the fact he has the guts to fulfill my gay student council dream of always helping out planning dances, and never getting asked. I couldn’t ask for a better person in my life. Thank you Jacob can’t wait for May 2nd!”
SO SWEET, omg. Sometimes these Millennials get it right, you know? Maybe there is hope for this world.
