Brad Taylor And Dylan Meehan, The 'Cutest Couple' This High School Didn't Expect (PHOTO)

Elizabeth Perle   |   Jun 01, 2013When 18-year-old Chelsea posted a photo of her classmates Brad Taylor And Dylan Meehan to her Tumblr blog this week, she did not anticipate the incredible response it would receive -- within 24 hours, the entry had been shared almost 100,000 times.The image was taken from her high school yearbook, and she included this caption:"Two of my best friends won Cutest Couple of our senior class. First time in my school history a same sex couple has even been able to run for this category, not to mention winning it. So proud of them, and my school."

No one was more surprised, however, than the couple themselves. In an email to The Huffington Post, Taylor and Meehan shared their reaction to the image -- and relationship -- being shared around the world.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 ... When we started dating a year [ago], 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.Not only are they the cutest, but if there were a "most inspiring couple" award, we'd venture to guess that these guys would be a shoo-in.

This is great to see and to read.

There were two guys in high school, gay and adored each other.  This was my Junior year, back in 80-81.  When I think back, to the group of kids I hung out with, every one knew and not one person made fun of or attacked these two.  Pretty damn amazing for back then.

There were those who showed their ignorance.  They were usually the 'preppy' ones who thought they were better but were raised with ignorance.  Some of the 'jocks' and others.  

I have a photo of them some where, I think.  We were all at the beach and they were holding hands, sitting on the sand.  

They were great guys.  Now I wonder what ever happened to them.

They never held hands and such during school.  Too many people were far worse than they thought these two guys were.

That would have never happened when I was in highschool. I am glad to see such positive strides.
