Gay teen shares adorable photo after secretly attending prom with his boyfriend

Joe Williams May 26, 2016

A gay teenager’s tweet has gone viral, as he revealed that he had to go to prom with his boyfriend in secret.

The teen – known only as Myren – was forced to hide his date from his parents, who refused to let him attend with his same-sex partner.

“My parents told me I couldn’t go to prom because I wanted to go with my boyfriend so I had to go behind their backs,” he wrote under the pic of him and his boyfriend Ralph.

The 17-year-old’s tweet has since received over 18,000 retweets and 40,000 likes on the social media site.

Myren has also received an outpouring of support from fellow Twitter users, who commended his bravery.

The brave teen later revealed that he is “safe”, as his parents are still unaware of his actions because they only “watch TV and check emails”.

Earlier this month, a lesbian who was turned away from her high school prom for wearing a tuxedo was offered a guest role on hit TV show ‘It’s Always Sunny’.

Aniya Wolf was kicked out of her prom for showing up in the “wrong attire”, with school officials even threatening to call the police.
