The video shows Adrian with his best friend Hector, who is straight.

“He’s my best straight boy-friend,” text in the video reads. The video shows pictures and small clips of the two hugging, wearing wigs, and being happy together.

“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.”

“He broke every straight stereotype.”

It hasn’t been easy for Hector, who has missed out on dating women who assume that he’s gay because he’s so supportive and faced anti-gay harassment.

“Hector u mean so much to me. I love you bro.”

The video was originally posted to TikTok and has been viewed 1.7 million times on Twitter and liked over 128,000 times.

It got people talking on social media about straight and gay men being friends… and got more than a few people running for their tissues.
