Not only are they known as Carmel High School’s cutest couple, but now Dylan Meehan and Brad Taylor have become the internet’s favorite lovebirds as well. This weekend the couple’s friend Chelsea Blaney posted a snapshot of Meehan and Taylor’s yearbook photo onto her Tumblr along with the 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.”

The photo quickly went viral, and in the first 24 hours it was posted online, it was shared over 100,000 times. “This whole thing has been a bit surreal for us because we have been raised to believe that love is love,” Meehan and Taylor shared in an email to Huffington Post. “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.”
