A gay man named Adrian took to social media to share an appreciation post for his straight best friend, Hector. Captioned with, “straight boys take notes,” the aforementioned post has now gone viral, perhaps owing to the touching video that goes with it as it shows a collage of the two guys’ photos and media clips spending good times together, unafraid of showing affection for each other.
The text in the video says that many people including their closest friends thought they were dating. Adrian says, “He’s my best straight boy-friend. I want to show how much I appreciate him for his fluid boldness to not giving a F*CK. He wasn’t scared to show that str8 guys can be as if not even more fem than gays.” Adrian added, “He broke every straight stereotype.”
Further, Adrian said that Hector’s dating life was “not the best” because “every girl thought he was gay or dating me.” Worse, Adrian shared that Hector was “harassed and questioned about his sexuality all the time.” He explained that Hector, however, didn’t care as “he was on a quest to make sure that gays felt safe and in comfort with their own skin.”
Adrian ended his tribute by saying, “Hector, you mean so much to me, I love you bro.” Watch the short clip below:

Of course, some of the tweeps over at Twitter took the opportunity to share either their own stories or their own thoughts on the matter:

This reminds me of the friendship between Otis and Eric on sex Ed. It’s cool that some people are not afraid to hang out with someone that’s not into everything they like. Keep it up💯 pic.twitter.com/VaDS01ICTe— J.IV (@the_real_JIV) February 17, 2020
If straight girls can do stuff like this and not be considered dating, why can’t guys tbh. Love to see it.— a lot of people would be scared✨ (@fmradious) February 17, 2020

…after reading this “Divine Comedy”,,, I had to reach for my trusted box of scented “Kleenex” to catch my bountiful tears for the Gay Boy who was on the receiving end of “The Milk Of Human Kindness” from his “Straight Friend”! Truly, I was moved…especially, after my second, semi-sweet Manhattan, straight-up! I was tempted to repair to my bedroom, to seek shelter and repose. Instead, I stood tall, walked into my 35 square feet, living room, to turn on my 7-channel, McIntosh Home Theater, to watch and listen to the PBS Documentary, “God Save The Queen”! PBS saved-the-day; ended-my-tears and… Read more »
Cry me a river. I’m a bisexual, and most of my straight friends know. There is no need for this.
Nice, but naaa I ain’t believing it I have straight friends but we don’t behave like that Hector is curious That’s gonna turn into a relationship Which is alright though
The BS factor is off the charts on this one.
That’s awesome reminds me of me n my best friend who’s a straight guy to
love love LOVE this. Kudos to both guys for the love n life they have. Makes me feel happy to know that there will be ppl out there on the street level showing the LGBTQ(and the rest of the letters i missed) helping them live their best and true life without fear.
So much love and respect from me it actually brought tears of joy to my eyes. (and i had them removec 2 months ago!)
Hector: You are my personal hero. keep doing you. We got your back too!%
How wonderful for them both!
Let us how things progress when he or he looks to add an emotion love interest into the equation.
My best friend of fifty-five years is totally straight, intensely handsome and sexy, and the ultimate chick magnet. As teenagers, we had sex with women, in the same king-size bed, and never touched or looked at one another. When I experienced my first male lover at thirty-four, he was the second and final person I immediately came out to; Ma was the first. We are affectionate and loving toward one another – and no one has ever questioned the particulars of our relationship because they know we’re just brothers from other mothers. Each of our mothers is the other’s mother… Read more »
I don’t get it.
Ground breaking in 1995.. oh wait its 2020… This is all done to go viral and get hits. Its like exploitation.
Its a really nice gesture but to each his own, but when your friend dating life is suffering cause you are all up in it, its going to cause a problem, gay guys have that issue too when you have your best friend and ur dating a guy and the best friend is all up in there plus also straight girls and guys, seems as though the friend doesn’t have a time and place, well its my opinion, all i’m saying is boundaries need to be set and have a balance, its really cool for his support but when he’s… Read more »
We recently was appointed at young (23) gay black preacher at my church. Most of the men were uncomfortable around him at first, but decided to give him a chance. His first service brought down the house. He was great!!! He’s a special guy, smart, with a great sense of humor and knows the bible. He’s a comedian type preacher and have us in stitches every Sunday. He regularly visits the sick and shut in. He goes to the houses of the sick for communion service. The most warm and passionate person you would ever want to meet. Neighboring churches… Read more »
It’s about time!
It’s not unheard of, but rather different dynamics and characters: Black man + white man, becoming friends or white man + Indigenous man, becoming friends. There’s a number these sitcoms out presently. “The Odd Couples that be”, “Grace and Will”, its about time for this duo.
It’s all good!
