The Bar Has Been Raised For Over-The-Top Gay Wedding Proposals


We’ve seen Harry Potter magic, Eurovision-style flare and uniformed glory all feature into fabulous gay wedding proposals, but this, folks, is the new score to beat.

It’s safe to say DeAndre Upshaw was certain about his decision to pop the question to longtime boyfriend, Stu, because with the amount of planning his next-level proposal must have taken, he surely had opportunity to question his motives.

Upshaw, a video producer from Dallas, shared the impressive feat on YouTube, effectively raising the bar for fans of elaborate surprise proposals.

According to Upshaw, the production included:

  • A grand total of four costume changes on my end
  • Marching Band uniforms purchased in bulk on Craigslist
  • Shiny rainbow choir robes direct from eBay
  • Confetti Cannons
  • A dance troupe
  • Flag twirlers
  • Ribbon Dancing
  • And over forty of our closest friends in family
