High school seniors (and boyfriends) Brad Taylor And Dylan Meehan were awarded the title of "Cutest Couple" and a photo of the happy couple was published in their school's yearbook. A friend excitedly posted the the image on Tumblr along with the following message:
"Two of my best friends won Cutest Couple of our senior class. First time in my school history a same sex couple has even been able to run for this category, not to mention winning it. So proud of them, and my school."
The Huffington Post reached out to the couple who responded with this message:
"This whole thing has been a bit surreal for us because we have been raised to believe that love is love. We never realized that our happiness and openness would inspire so many individuals. The support we have received from our family, friends, and even strangers has led us to believe that our affection for each other is normal … When we started dating a year [ago], the thought of a photo of us traveling throughout the world would be a bit frightening, but now we are proud to be part of the LGBT community."
Adorable. Congrats, guys!
