Dylan Meehan and Brad Taylor
The two gay teens who made international headlines after being voted their New York school’s ‘cutest couple’ have attended the prom together.
Last week, a Carmel High School yearbook picture of Brad Taylor and Dylan Meehan as the cutest couple in the school went viral and made them minor celebrities.
On Monday, the couple went to the school prom while the US media revealed more information about the lovebirds.
“It’s been insane,” Taylor told USA Today. “We are very, very proud to show that Carmel High School is the way it is.”
The boys have been together for a year. Soon after being introduced by a friend in June last year they came out to their friends and family.
“No one treats us any differently from straight couples,” Meehan said.”We’re both six-foot something,” added Taylor. “What are they going to say?”
Taylor’s father, Robert, commented “I don’t know why there’s such a big deal being made about this. In this day and age, it’s normal.”
The couple revealed that they will both be attending New York University on scholarship following their graduation. They plan to study theatre, business and the sciences.
