A friend no matter what!

Gay teen asked to prom by straight best friend: ‘You’re my brother, so be my date?’

A devoted friend has proven his staying power after asking his gay best mate to prom – despite being straight himself.

known as Jacob, created a giant banner to ask his dear pal, known as Anthony, to the coming of age ceremony.

The friends embrace after Anthony accepts ‘You’re hella gay, I’m hella str8, but you’re like my brother, so be my d8?’ Jacob wrote on the giant red banner, which he surprised his pal with in the school corridor.

Sharing his story with the world, Anthony wrote: ‘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.’

How it all happened (via Imgur)

‘I couldn’t ask for a better person in my life.’

‘Thank you Jacob can’t wait for May 2nd!’

A picture was also shared on social media of the pair embracing, a massive smile on Anthony’s face.

How unbelievably sweet is this? Would you do this for a friend?

It’s the oldest gay story in the book.

Two guy best friends, both ‘straight’ to the other, have a drunken fumble and realise they have deeper feelings than they realised.

Well, maybe it’s not the oldest story, but it’s definitely a good one.

This happened to two guys in Georgia, and it all developed over Yik Yak.

The app, much like Whisper, allows people to share their secrets anonymously with strangers according to their location.

The original poster (he’s in green) asks for advice: ‘Last night, my best friend and I got really drunk and slept together. We’re both guys. It was fucking great.

‘But he’s “straight” and I’m questioning AND IM FREAKING OUT WHAT DO I DO HELP.’

Read the whole thing below, it’s got a great ending:

Watch these five people make a powerful point about family

This heart-warming video proves family is family, whether you’re gay or straight

What do you think of when you hear the word ‘family’?

Perhaps it’s your parents laughing and squabbling on a car journey, or maybe it’s the kids you’re planning in the future.

Five willing volunteers, Ricardo, Jan, Connor, Yvonne and Danielle, were asked to explain what ‘family’ means to them, revealing the beautifully individual ways their parents have shaped their lives, and what this means for their future relationships.

After sharing their dreams for their weddings and children, it came as a shock to many viewers that – spoiler alert – all five video stars are gay.

By exploring their everyday experiences of family life, the video hopes to prove to critics of same-sex marriage and adoption that a loving family, in whatever form it takes, is something to be celebrated – and, surprisingly enough, has little to do with a person’s sexual orientation.

‘I think a happy family is the kind of family that creates individuals, that are independent as well,’ explained Yvonne.

‘Kids that can be strong and can be very energetic, very out there, but they know they can have that place they can always go back to.’

Many viewers appear to have been shocked by the plot twist at the end of the video.

One commenter, Megan Tomlinson, posted: ‘So glad I liked this video before I knew the ending, made me feel extra happy.’

‘Bit of a shock at the end. Excellent video,’ said another, Conor O’Flaherty.

The video, produced by Irish YouTube channel Facts, comes ahead of the country’s referendum on same-sex marriage, taking place on 22 May.

Naked For The First Time

A fun way to get to know your best mate.

What’s it like to see your buddy naked for the first time after knowing him for years?

Buzzfeed tackled this question over the weekend in one of their latest videos, aptly titled “Guy Friends See Each Other Naked For The First Time.” In the clip, which you can view above, men in a variety of close relationships strip down and bare it all for one another.

The brilliant (and fun) breaking down of traditional expectations of masculinity through shamelessness at play here makes this one of our favorite videos we’ve seen from Buzzfeed… for more reasons than one.

Dear straight people, this is how you should act in gay bars

Gay man writes an incredible open letter

Gay bars are not just for LGBTI people, we all know this, but it is a sanctuary for them.

We all know that feeling when we see a drunk straight girl angry she’s not getting any attention or when a straight guy reacts badly to getting hit on.

So a gay guy has absolutely nailed how the straights should act when they’re in a gay space, and it essentially comes down to ‘have respect’.

Reddit was asked: ‘Gay men or anybody – Do you find it slightly weird or disrespectful when a group of straight people (often liberal college girls) want to hang out at gay bars or clubs?

And one user responded by saying: ‘Speaking as a gay guy, I don’t think it’s categorically rude; it depends on the circumstances, and how the straight person in question acts while there. I have written an open letter to the straight community to explain the nuances,

‘Dear straight people:

‘Generally speaking, you are perfectly welcome in our bars, as long as you keep in mind that they are spaces that are not intended to cater to you – if you think that’s unfair, then go cry about it ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD, since that’s the space that DOES cater to you, pretty much exclusively. You know that sense of discomfort and alienation that you sometimes feel in our bars? That’s how we feel in virtually every social space we go to, so please do not begrudge us this one public place on Earth where we can pay for the “privilege” to hit on, dance with, and make out with people we actually find attractive without watching our backs.

‘For straight women, respecting the importance of our sanctuaries means that you should recognize gay bars are not an ideal place to hold your bachelorette party (in jurisdictions where we are not allowed to marry, that’s particularly tacky); that, if you are a young attractive woman, you will not be the centre of attention that you are accustomed to being in straight bars, and that just because you are among a bunch of gay dudes does not mean you have free reign to drunkenly grope us on the dance floor or at the bar (by the same token, we do not have the right to paw at your boobs just because we are gay; I invite you to put any drunken gay lout who does so firmly in his place).

‘For straight men (particularly good-looking ones), you should prepare for the very real possibility that a gay dude might make a pass at you while you are at a gay bar. If you can’t find it in yourself to politely decline a pass from another guy, then stay the hell out. Most of the time saying something like, “I’m flattered, but straight” will be the end of it, but remember that some gay guys are jerks, just like some straight guys are jerks, and will likewise not respond well to having their advances rebuffed. If you don’t think you can handle that, then you can be sure that your night will be better spent in a straight bar, no matter how much better our music is (and it IS).

‘Finally, for straight couples, try to have some decorum. We don’t resent your dancing together or engaging in modest displays of affection. If, however, you descend into a full-blown grinding/makeout session on the dance floor, it kind of sends the signal that you are trying to lay claim to our space, and we may not take kindly to that. Again, you can console yourself with the knowledge that you can do that kind of thing pretty much anywhere else on the planet; you should be more than content with that.

‘In closing, feel free to come to a gay bar, as long as you respect the fact that it’s a GAY bar.

‘Gaily Yours,

‘Esperandopara’
