The video of the couple–who, at the time of this writing, remains unidentified–shows the pair meeting on Henry Street in Dublin, Ireland. A large crowd immediately gathered as one man handed another a bouquet of roses. He also carried a heart-shaped balloon with a question mark on it–a sign of things to come.
As one of the men reached into his jacket, he dropped to one knee, sending the crowd into squeals. He grabbed a nearby microphone–we’re guessing this was planned in advance–before finally popping the big question. His other half wasted no time in saying yes.
The couple shared a passionate kiss as the crowd burst into cheers and applause.
Considering the long, devout Catholic history of Ireland, and that marriage equality only became legal there in 2015, we take this as a sign of hope for more than just the happy couple.
