“In my opinion, everyone needs a Trent,” Bryce sent as the closing to the sweet tale.

As gay Twitter quickly rocketed the tweet to go viral, users started sharing stories of their own “Trents,” creating a beautiful thread of inspiring stories about straight allies.

After his brief story started bouncing around the internet, Bryce shared how the popularity and reactions had moved him.

“Seeing the responses of people who have someone in their life like my friend is honestly so reassuring. Like yes, men are trash. We get that. But there really are some gems out there w amazing hearts, who actually treat people as people (a concept you’d think everyone grasps),” he wrote in followup tweets.

“I mean they should grasp it, but not everyone does for whatever reason. Aaaannnnnyyyyways. I figured this tweet would get positive feedback, but def didn’t think I would take it so personally (in the best way possible).”

“It’s just nice seeing other’s support systems regardless of what society labels them as, or how they personally identify themselves,” he tweeted. “There’s so much hate surrounding us in the world, but seeing some love shine through gives me hope for both the near & distant future.”

Also, Trent is single.
