Straight Guy Surprises His Gay Best Friend With Best Promposal Ever (Photos)


Seventeen-year-old Anthony Martinez, a proud gay student at Las Vegas' Desert Oasis High School, recently tweeted his frustrations about never getting asked to prom.

But this week, he was finally surprised with the promposal of his dreams by someone he'd never expected to ask him: His straight best friend, Jacob Lescenski.

Jacob had originally planned on going with a female student but tells New Now Next his “original date idea didn't work out so well.”

So when he saw Anthony's frustrated tweet, an idea struck: He'd ask Anthony to go to prom with him.

With the help of a friend named Mia, Jacob created a giant banner that read: “You're hella gay, i'm hella str8, but you're like my brother, so be my d8?”

He surprised Anthony with the wonderfully unconventional promposal the next day at school.

Jacob recalls,

Anthony was touched by the incredible promposal and, of course, accepted.

Anthony wrote on Tumblr,

Anthony is right about Jacob: It takes a real man to do something so amazing for his best friend.

We couldn't be more proud of these two awesome guys, and we wish them the time of their lives at prom.
