Straight teen asks gay best friend to prom and we can't even handle the cuteness
Las Vegas teen Anthony Martinez was sad about not being asked to prom, especially since he was part of the student council and always helped plan dances without ever getting a date to one. That's when he was hit with a major surprise. 

“I DONT WANT TO DATE YOU I JUST WANT A GUY AS A DATE TO PROM. I ALWAYS HELP WITH DANCES ITD BE NICE TO GET ASKED TO ONE,” Martinez tweeted on April 20 and on April 21, his best friend Jacob Lescenski, who happens to be straight, stepped up, big time.

Enlisting the help of some friends, Lescenski made a huge show of asking Martinez to prom by meeting him with a huge banner right in the middle of the school's hallway, which read: “You’re hella gay, I’m hella str8, but you’re like my brother, so be my d8?”
Martinez posted a photo to Twitter and later wrote about the event on Tumblr: “Guess who 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.”

We can't even handle so much cuteness! THIS is what being an amazing friend, and human being, is all about.
