Being asked to prom is nerve-racking for any high schooler, particularly for those wanting to take a same-sex date.
Thanks to a wonderful friendship, one gay Las Vegas teen will have amazing memories because his straight, male best friend asked him to be his date!
Anthony Martinez always loved planning dances, but was never asked. That changed when his best friend Jacob Lescenski showed him a banner that read:
“You’re hella gay. I’m hella str8, but you’re like my brother, so be my d8?”
The story went viral after Martinez posted the news on his Twitter. The high schooler revealed just how much this meant to him in a separate post:
“Guess who just 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.”
Now, that is an amazing friendship! We hope these two friends have a great prom, and wonderful story inspires others like it to happen!
