Adorable Boyfriends Named "Cutest Couple" In High School Yearbook

High school is waaaay different than we remember it being way back in 1994 2012!  

A senior named Chelsea posted a pic of boyfriends Brad Taylor And Dylan Meehan, crowned her high school's "Cutest Couple", to her Tumblr blog. It quickly went viral over the weekend, so the Huffington Post caught up with the boys for their reaction to the sudden Internet fame. 


They said:

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.

If the harsh halls of high school can birth such an inspirational sign of the times, here's to hope for the rest of the typical hostile-to-gays places in the world.
