This Gay Teen Getting Asked To Prom By His Straight Best Friend Is Melting The World’s Heart
Includes the best rhyming EVER.
It’s prom season over in America right now, which means most teens are engrossed in serious issues like corsages and tux fittings.
But one ‘promposal’ story has made its way all around the world, mainly thanks to being the cutest thing EVER - and it involves some pretty impressive rhyming.

In case you didn’t know, promposals are when teens pull off big, elaborate gestures to ask their dates to prom (come on, we’ve all seen the Laguna Beach episode when Talan asks Kristin).
So while the bar has already been set pretty high thanks to TV shows, Jacob Lescenski has taken the cake with this bromantic surprise, as he asked his gay BFF to be his date.
Showing off some strong banner making skills, Jacob surprised his pal Anthony Martinez with a huge poster at school that read, “You’re hella gay, I’m hella str8, but you’re like my brother, so be my d8?”
Oh those youths and their text talk.
After their story went viral, the pair chatted to NewNowNext about the whole thing, with Anthony telling the site: “‘Being gay, and knowing I’m too busy for guys, no gay guy would ask me to a dance, let alone prom.”
So when Jacob saw his friend’s tweet venting that it’d be nice to actually get asked to a prom, he took action.
Jacob explained: “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.”
One giant banner later and BAM, Anthony got himself that date.

Posting on Tumblr, Anthony told his followers: “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.”
Cutest. Story. Ever.
