Ellen Degeneres, Patron Saint of the Gays, reminded us why she has the highest daytime television ratings this week by facilitating a surprise gay proposal with two members of her studio audience.
Ellen is used to doing great things for good people, so after a recent taping of her show, she asked the audience to stay seated so she could invite Benjamin and Justin of Fort Myers, Florida — seemingly random fans — on stage to share ‘whatever they’d like.’ Unbeknownst to Justin, it was all part of his boyfriend’s pre-arranged proposal plan.
These kids better get hitched while they’re in California, because in case you forgot, they’re not entitled to equal rights in their home state of Florida. Check out the sweet moment below:
Darling boys! Thanks, Ellen, for showing the USA positive images of our community. You may have changed a few minds out there.
They are such a good couple. I wish them the best in their marriage.
I’m shaking, too, and blubbering and smiling and feeling the love. Happiness to them!
While this is really adorable, I wish Queerty omitted “gay” from the headline. I know I’m being that guy but it just makes it seem like there are proposals and there are gay proposals. There are just proposals. gay or straight.
@digreene3: Valid observation.
Though this is very sweet and positive, I couldn’t stop myself from screaming “NOOO!” The first year of a relationship is usually very pleasant: great sex, consistent time together, getting to know each other, etc. Many people would want to marry the cute “new” guy. I think the proposal is two years early. They need more time to get to know each other. When the relationship isn’t new, will they still feel the same way?
I had to laugh at myself cause I had this big goofy smile while watching that haha 😀 I’m a sucker for adorableness!
@digreene3: True, the pic makes it pretty clear anyway lol.
@justmyopinion: Agreed, but let’s wish them the best 🙂
