It wasn’t long after that Herrerra noticed his male friends holding up a sign reading “We’re straight, you’re gay – be our hoco (Homecoming) date.”
“My guy friends put any kind of fragile masculinity aside and made a high school dream of mine come to fruition,” Ture spoke told the outlet. Overcome with emotion, Herrerra ran up to his friends in disbelief where he was wrapped within the warm embrace of his close friends.
A video showing the proposal was posted to Instagram on Herrerra’s account with the caption “Soo all of my guy friends asked me to homecoming because they knew I wanted to be asked #validLGBT.”
