Screen Shot 2015-02-12 at 2.34.02 PM

A transgender man shared his touching coming out story with I’m From Driftwood, a LGBTQA story archive, on how he came out as a transgender man to his lesbian girlfriend. 

Said Mitch:

"We actually met online, on the site OKCupid. So we had this great dynamic from the start. I was, at the time, really, like, [a] kind of butch - or masculine-identified woman, and she is and always has been - remains - a really feminine-identified woman. It wasn't something, even when I entered the relationship, that I was thinking, 'This is something I need to tell her about me,' it's hard to explain how I had compartmentalized that part of me and just put it somewhere else, and it hadn't come to the fore for several years."

A year into their relationship, Jocelyn’s faith in Mitch gave him the strength to come out to his girlfriend as transgender. Mitch’s coming out was emotional, but Mitch’s courage in coming out led to the two’s engagement and marriage.

A Real-Life Gay Proposal Took Place on the Set of Kelly Clarkson's 'Heartbeat Song' Music Video: WATCH

Proposal

Last week we posted Kelly Clarkson's "Heartbeat Song" music video, which featured a number of couples and told a tale of how we all have a chance at finding love again after a break-up.

One of the stories was a gay couple who are seen in the clip showing off a set of rings.

The backstory on the clip, which we now know thanks to a behind-the-scenes video, is that Zac Woodward and Chad Laboy are a real-life couple and Laboy got down on one knee and proposed to Woodward for real, on set, and it was shot by the crew.

Woodward is a producer for the "Woody and Jim Show" on Nashville radio station 107.5 The River.

Watch the moment, AFTER THE JUMP....

No date has been set for the impending nuptials but it's safe to say that it will be the event of the season, or a total shit show.

"We definitely have a few ideas. Sandra Bernhardtwill be marrying us. She's a very close friend and she's an officiant," DeLaria said. "And Jesse Tyler Ferguson will be my best man. We go way back."

Cammisano posted a follow-up photo with ring on hand:

Tiffany Celebrates (And Advertises To) Gay Couples: PHOTO

Tiffany

Tiffany & Co. is grabbing people's attention with more than their little blue boxes lately. The iconic jewelry retailer has launched a new engagement ring ad campaign that targets gay male couples and also features an actual gay couple (as opposed to relying on models). The company released a statement to ELLE Magazine heralding their first campaign focusing on same-sex love and marriage:

"Nowadays, the road to marriage is no longer linear, and true love can happen more than once with love stories coming in a variety of forms," said Linda Buckley, Tiffany & Co. VP of North American PR, in a statement to ELLE.com. "The Tiffany engagement ring is the first sentence of the story that a couple will write together as they create a life that is deeply intimate and exceptional, which is the message we hope to convey through this campaign."

The picture of the handsome couple in Tiffany's ad, who thus far have remained anonymous, also features a romantic and wistful caption sure to give any sap (yours truly included) a case of the "aww"s:

"Will you promise to never stop completing my sentences or singing off-key, which I'm afraid you do often? And will you let today be the first sentence of one long story that never, ever ends? Will you?"

Tiffany is not the first retailer to feature actual gay couples in its advertisements. You'll recall Banana Republic last year featured the stylish duo of Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent in a series of ads focused on "showcasing true relationships."
