Straight Teen Asks Gay Best Friend to Prom
Gay high school junior Anthony Martinez wasn’t really looking forward to prom this year. Despite being a prom enthusiast, and being on his high school’s prom committee, no boy has asked him to the prom. That’s when he was hit with a major surprise.
“I DONT WANT TO DATE YOU I JUST WANT A GUY AS A DATE TO PROM. I ALWAYS HELP WITH DANCES ITD BE NICE TO GET ASKED TO ONE,” Martinez tweeted.
Unknown to him, his straight best friend Jacob Lescenski saw his wistful social media posts, and decided to step up to the plate.
Lescenski enlisted their friends into poster-making and a clever rhyme that’s now gone viral.
“You’re hella gay, i’m hella str8, but you’re like my brother so be my d8” read the poster.
Posting the picture on Instagram, Martinez wrote: “Guess who just got asked to prom by @jacob_lescenskii. He’s 100 percent straight I promise but he’s a real man cause he has the guts to fulfill his bestfriends dream and take him to a dance… I couldn’t ask for a better friend.”
The pair have been overwhelmed by the love and good wishes flowing in, and posted this video online to give their thanks.
