Whatever the opposite of a burn book is, a recent reunion between Mean Girls stars Jonathan Bennett and Daniel Franzese deserves to be memorialized in it.

On the eve of October 3, which fans of the iconic film know as Mean Girls day, the two former co-stars met up on the streets of N.Y.C in Times Square for the most adorable reunion.

Both Bennett and Franzese shared a series of photos of them loved up and with each giving the other a big kiss on the cheek. It’s the cutest, no mean girls here. They captioned the series of images with an appropriately cheeky “What gay is?”

For those unfamiliar with the unofficial holiday at the center of this story, it’s based on a line from the film. At one point, Bennett’s character turns to Lindsay Lohan’s and asks the date, and, you guessed it, it was October 3 and a holiday was born.

Both stars have recently been in the headlines. Franzese opened up his conflicted feelings around the upcoming film The Whale in a recent interview with People. “I love Brendan Fraser, [so] I’m very conflicted,” he said. “Seeing him get up so modest in Venice and have that moment, I was very happy for him. He’s a lovely man. And it’s great. But why? Why go up there and wear a fat suit to play a 400-lb. queer man?”

The issue for Franzese is the lack of representation for actual queer fat people. “To finally have a chance to be in a prestige film that might be award-nominated, where stories about people who look like us are being told? That’s the dream,” he said. “So when they go time and time again and cast someone like Brendan Fraser...we’re like, ‘What the ... ?’ We can’t take it! But I guess you can go ahead and wear a fat suit and do what you got to do and get your Oscar. We’ll just sit here, waiting.”

Bennett, on the other hand, is making Hallmark history starring alongside George Krissa in the network’s first ever gay Christmas movie, The Holiday Sitter. “Sam is a workaholic bachelor who babysits his niece and nephew before the holidays when his sister and her husband have to go out of town. Completely out of his element, he recruits help from their handsome neighbor Jason and finds himself in an unexpected romance,” reads the film’s official synopsis. It’s set to release December 11 on the Hallmark Channel.
