The friendship between Adam Torres and Dave Turner began in Season 11.

Friendship History


Adam and Dave started off as rivals when they were both vying for the chance to host a Degrassi radio show geared towards the male population of Degrassi. Dave did not agree with Adam being given an opportunity to host a show for boys, as he was not born male. This led to animosity between him and Adam. After Dave learned about Adam's experiences as a young trans man, they were eventually able to put aside their differences, and work together as friends and co-hosts on Degrassi's radio show, "Mano-A-Mano.". The boys developed a close friendship, often confiding their life and relationship problems in each other, often resulting in the other asking vague yet relevant questions about the others situation on-air, and requesting feedback from their fans. They remained close until Adam's death in Season 13. Dave was seen at Adam's funeral, along with all of their mutual friends.
