prom date

A straight guy asked his gay friend to the prom, and it was adorable

He just wanted to do something nice for his mate. D’aww.

IF YOU HAVE seen any American films or TV shows over the past 20 years, you’ll know that prom is a massive deal to US teens.

Anthony Martinez from Las Vegas just wanted a boy to ask him to prom – they didn’t have to go out on a date, it didn’t have to be romantic, he just wanted to be asked.

Seeing how upset he was, Anthony’s best friend Jacob Lescenski enlisted their mates to help him ask Anthony to prom.

And it was too, too sweet.

In a post on his Tumblr, Anthony said:

He’s my best friend, and a real man given the fact he has the guts to fulfil 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 saw Anthony, who is my best friend, tweeting about wanting a date. I thought about how amazing of a guy he is, and that he deserved one,” Jacob told NewNowNext.

Anthony and Jacob’s big night is on May 2. Have a good one, guys!
