Gay pair who gained instant internet fame as 'cutest couple' go to their high school prom
Bradley Taylor and Dylan Meehan inspired by the support and attention
Brad Taylor and Dylan Meehan, a gay couple who gained instant internet fame after being voted ‘Cutest Couple’ in their high school yearbook, went to their prom this week as celebrities.
The tuxedo-clad pair from Carmel, New York, smiled for cameras as they posed for pre-prom photos on Monday (4 June) and reflected on all that has transpired since yearbook photo went viral last Friday.
'It's been insane,' Taylor, 17, tells USA Today. 'We are very, very proud to show that Carmel High School is the way it is.' Added Meehan: 'The support people are giving us and people yelling out 'You're famous' makes it so exciting.'
The pair began dating a year ago and are both, in a happy coincidence, attending New York University in the fall. They both have 4.0 grade point averages and will attend NYU on scholarship.
