Straight high schooler Jacob Lescenski recently asked his gay best friend, Anthony Martinez to go to prom with him – proving once and for all that friendship and true bromance will conquer all.
The Las Vegas high schoolers have since shot to social media stardom with applause coming from all corners of the internet.
This promposal wasn’t just your basic ask either, check out this incredible sign that Jacob made for his best buddy…
“He’s a real man,” Anthony said of Jacob in a Twitter post following the ask, “given that 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.”
“I decided on going to prom alone because my original date idea didn’t work out so well,” explained Jacob to NewNowNext.com. “Then one night I saw Anthony, who is my best friend, tweeting about wanting a date.”
After that, Jacob decided to initiate a secret promposal surprise, and asked his friend Mia to help him make the poster for the big moment. The following day Anthony, who was busy selling prom tickets as a member of the student council, walked upstairs after their lunch period to find the gargantuan sign waiting for him. “I saw this giant poster and assumed it was for another person—until I read ‘You’re hella gay.’”
With so many terrible stories about gay students being rejected from experiencing their own prom experiences, it’s beautiful to see such a dramatic shift in the tide as we watch the world embrace such a genuine friendship.
Enjoy the evening gentlemen – you won’t forget it!
This bromance will make your day!! How adorable is this promposal?
