Gay Acrobat Proposes to His Boyfriend in Groundbreaking Moment Live on Italian TV: WATCH


In a moment never before seen on Italian TV, a gay couple got engaged.

The proposal took place on Italia's Got Talent, after Les Farfadais, a troupe of acrobatic dancers, performed a routine to "The Power of Love". One of the dancers then got down on one knee, and after his boyfriend said "yes" the couple kissed on stage.

The judges Vanessa Incontrada, Claudio Bisio, Nina Zilli, Luciana Littizzetto and Frank Matano, were as stunned as the audience, who cheered for the couple.

Said the show's host: "I swear that this marriage proposal was not in the lineup."


Italy, of course, does not have marriage equality but has been making modest moves toward it in recent months.

In February, Italy's highest appeals court ruled that same-sex marriage is not a constitutional right but that gay couples are entitled to certain rights and protections.

Rome's Mayor married 16 gay couples last October in defiance of Italy's laws. Rome has also created a register of civil unions for same-sex couples. Bologna  came out in favor of recognizing same-sex unions in September.

Transgender Man Describes How Coming Out To His Lesbian Girlfriend Led to Marriage: VIDEO

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


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.
