We haven't seen any of the other entrants up for Carmel High School's "Cutest Couple," but we're pretty sure no one else would have blown up quite the way that Brad Taylor and Dylan Meehan did, becoming the first gay couple in the school's history to win the honor.

The Internet first became aware of Taylor and Meehan after their classmate Chelsea Blaney posted about the men on her Tumblr:

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.

Perhaps the most endearing thing about the pair is their surprise at their own popularity. In an email to the Huffington Post, the two called the ordeal "surreal," saying, "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. We never realized that our happiness and openness would inspire so many individuals."
