True poetry came recently in the form of a cheesily-worded prom invitation when Jacob Lescenski of Las Vegas popped the question to Anthony Martinez.
“You’re hella gay, I’m hella str8, but you’re like my brother, so be my d8?”
While we’re always thrilled to hear stories of gay prom dates shattering the status quo, we absolutely love the idea of a straight guy who’s comfortable enough with himself to ask his gay best friend to the prom.
Whatever they’re putting in the school lunches down in Vegas is paying off.
Here’s the Tweet that Anthony posted that’s since been retweeted over a thousand times:

“He’s a real man,” Anthony said of Jacob, “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.”
Now the real question is — matching tuxes?
