A Straight Teen Asking His Gay Best Friend to Prom is The Best Thing You’ll See All Week!

Promposals can range from “aw” to “ugh” but this one is tear-worthy.

Anthony Martinez is on the student council at his Las Vegas high school and is always helping plan dances. But he never gets asked.

“Being gay, and knowing I’m too busy for guys, no gay guy would ask me to a dance, let alone prom,” he said to NewNowNext. “So like any teen I complained about it on Twitter.”

So when his best friend Jacob Lescenski asked him, it was pretty much the best thing any of us has ever seen.

“I decided on going to prom alone because my original date idea didn’t work out so well,” explained Jacob. “Then one night I saw Anthony, who is my best friend, tweeting about wanting a date.”


As we all know, complaining on Twitter is the surest way to get things done. And this is apparently true of prom, too. Congratulations, Anthony and Jacob! We can’t wait to see your prom pics.
