Not everyone gets to become the European bear of bears, but one man is here to prove we’re all deserving of love.
Gabriel Yalda, a 26-year-old make-up artist from Austria, just bear-ly lost the title at this year’s Mr. Bear Europe competition in Cologne, coming in at a respectable runner-up.
But he certainly won over the crowd with what happened next.
Yalda got up on stage and popped the question to his 48-year-old partner, Csaba Toth. (Tot also happens to be Mr. Bear Hungary, for what it’s worth.)
And wouldn’t you know it — he said yes!
“I was super nervous, because that was just before the final – no one knew about my plans, and I hardly knew what to say, just because of nervousness: the choice and the application,” Yalda told queer Asutrian website GGG.
