It is the weekend, which means we need a Nice Time, and it’s a GOOD ONE. Remember prom? That thing that happened in high school where the mean kids spilled pig blood all over you, so you unleashed your powers and murdered everybody? Ha ha, no, you did not do that, you are not Carrie! You stayed home from your prom, duh. Well, here is a gay kid who is DEFINITELY going, because his best friend, a straight guy, asked him in the most adorable way.
It all started when young gay whippersnapper Anthony Martinez, from the Desert Oasis High School in Las Vegas, tweeted that hey, he’s tired of just PLANNING the prom, he would like to please go, and with a dude:
So Anthony’s best friend, Jacob Lescenski, caught wind of the tweet and thought, hey, Anthony is my best bro friend, I am going to give him the man date he’s always wanted! So he got together with his friends and had that banner up there made, which, if you are hard of eyesight, says, “you’re hella gay, I’m hella str8, but you’re like my brother, so be my d8?” How hella sweet that is!
Towleroad explains how it all went down:
Lescenski “Promposed” to Martinez on Wednesday at school shortly after lunch where Martinez was in the lunch room selling prom tickets. After selling tickets, Martinez ascended a pair of stairs on his way to class where he was met by Lescenski and the giant poster asking him to prom. Martinez happily accepted Lescenski’s cheeky “Promposal.”
And then they hugged, because they were both so very excited!
These two seem to just adore each other, and it’s very, very super cool to see that, in Obama’s gay America, it’s officially no big for a straight dude and a gay dude to be besties, in high school. Of course, we knew that already because we are gay and one of our bestest BFFs is a Straight Man.
Martinez says his bud Jacob is a pretty good example of how a real man is supposed to act, “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.” We agree with that!
According to Martinez’s Tumblr, (which Wonkette is now going to follow, on OUR TUMBLR!) they’re going to eat and dance and all the other normal prom things, and then go hang out with their friends. Also, in response to a Tumblr-er who remarked that his date is “hella hot,” Martinez replied, “he knows.” Ha ha ha, KIDS, am I right? All thinking they’re hot shit or something.
So, the prom is May 2, they are going to have so much fun, and then they will live happily ever after, in a totally platonic way, and now there is officially a big gay smile on our surly Wonkette face.
