Two gay teens voted cutest couple at their California high school weren’t as surprised they won the coveted superlative as they were at how quickly news of it spread across the internet.

What started as a Tumblr post by a friend of Brad Taylor and Dylan Meehan arm in arm in their high school yearbook ended up becoming a viral sensation—the charming photo was shared 100,000 times in about 24 hours.

So, no sooner did Brad and Dylan become the cutest couple of their high school than they became the internet’s most adorable teen lovebirds.

And they have friend Chelsea Blaney to thank for it.

Three days ago, Blaney posted a photo of her friends Brad and Dylan from Carmel, New York’s Carmel High School to her Tumblr account.

It was the shot from their high school yearbook commemorating their ‘Cutest Couple’ win.

‘Two of my best friends won Cutest Couple of our senior class,’ wrote Blaney in the caption. ‘First time in my school history a same s3x couple has even been able to run for this category, not to mention winning it. So proud of them, and my school.’

Within hours, the post went viral. The post received ‘like’ after ‘like’ and continued to be shared until an astounding 100,000 people had passed along the touching photo.

Major news sites began picking up the story, and before they knew what happened, Brad and Dylan—whose Facebook profiles indicate an extracurricular appreciation for the theater—were stars.

But they weren’t altogether sure if they knew why.

The Huffington Post reached out to the photogenic duo to get their reaction.

‘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,’ they wrote HuffPo in an email.

‘When we started dating,’ they said, ‘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.’

I feel like all these gay news stories are starting to influence people into becoming gay too.

It's a not-so hostile takeover. With two snaps and a twist.

I have only three things to say... Go 'Head Babes!! :) They look so happy and I'm glad that they had their moment to shine. Sigh. If only others were lucky enough to experience the same opportunity. :/

Because there are still many people/establishments against and uncertain about giving same s3x couples the same recognition as opposite s3x couples... that's why it's news. This doesn't happen often and you still have places where same s3x couples are told not to display their affections, while their heteros3xual friends are allowed to do so publicly. This might not seem newsworthy to you (which is kind of a good thing), but it's nice to see for someone who is gay or bis3xual and was unable to experience this or to express their relationship without being shunned or shamed.

Well, if the original poster followed this sections rules the title of the article is "Tumblr post of gay teens voted high school's cutest couple shared 100,000 times in just 24 hours"

I guess they were reporting more on the 100,000 shares in 24 hours and not so much the fact that they are gay.

However, the original poster was trying to get a rise out of people and that is why he made the title that he did.

But you're right, it's not news
