He Said Yes

WATCH: The Internet’s Favorite Gay Marine Proposes To His Boyfriend

Brandon Morgan became an internet sensation after the photo of his homecoming embrace with his boyfriend went viral. inadvertently, Brandon and Dalan became the faces of the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.

Now, Brandon is making an honest man out of Dalan. Brandon popped the question over the weekend while the two were out to eat. And luckily, it was caught on camera. The audio is not terribly great but Brandon said “with the repeal of DOMA or not, will you do me the honor of spending your life with me?” And of course, Dalan said yes!

Congrats to the happy couple!

    Cute but strange… like why were they in an empty restaurant and why was there a third person there videoing them?

  • Dixie Rect

    It has a reality show kind of staged feel – is this going to be an audition tape for some Bravo TV show?

  • DarkZephyr

    @yaoming: Probably because he wanted it on video to capture the moment?

    Congratulations, brothers.

    Your photo of the initial embrace said it all….thanks for that moment. It did this veterans heart a world of good.

    LOL..They were in a mostly empty restaurant because Wolfgang’s Steakhouse in Tribeca/NYC is mainly a dinner restaurant and I was hosting them at lunch…purely accident that it was an “off” time, given that I had picked them up at Laguardia and was giving them a brief tour of the city and my neighborhood (TriBeCa) before taking them to Brooklyn Cruise Terminal for their QM2 trip off to England and Dalan’s birthday trip, hosted by Brandon and two of their other US friends joining them there. Probably TMI, but Brandon and I had worked out ahead of their visit the time and place and agreed that I would record on my IPhone…which I did (those are my chuckles you can hear if you listen closely)…but I had no idea that the sound would be so faint during the actual proposal, and nothing one can do after the fact that I know of…the restaurant staff was terrific too, as they came around with champagne for all, after the surprise proposal…hope that helps clarify a little…it was impromptu but planned…if that makes sense.
