Beautiful LGBTQ Proposals
We just love these unexpected proposals! This is what makes them special. Not knowing it, not expecting it, but eventually, uniting two people for an eternity.
1. Kate Austen and Sarah Sulsenti
This is probably one of the most popular lesbian proposal.
It all happened on the Ellen Show, where Sarah proposed live, in front of the live audience.
It all happened after Kate tweeted to Ellen.
My parents aren’t going to attend my wedding because they don’t like that I’m gay. I need someone to walk me down the aisle and someone else for a ‘father/daughter’ dance. Please come. My fiance and I would cry.
It didn’t take long, and Ellen invited them both on her show.
Sarah said that “there’s no better way to do it than in front of our chosen family and of course, our biggest role model.”
2. Becky McCabe and Jessa Gillaspie
The Tennessee couple planned to propose to each other at the same time, but none of them knew it.
It all happened while they were visiting the Memphis Zoo and Aquarium in 2018, to celebrate their anniversary.
When Becky proposed, Jessa started searching for her ring instead of saying yes, making it an amazing double proposal.
In a Facebook post, Jessa said.
I had no idea [Becky] planned to propose and she had no idea I planned to propose to her. We were both so surprised! We were surrounded by our friends and had the most amazing night. I am the luckiest girl in the world to be able to call her my fiance.
3. Jess Herron and Giulia Umile
When Giulia planned to propose, she made sure her moment would be truly unique.
It all happened in their Philadelphia backyard.
Giulia made custom signs for her two kids and bulldog, asking Jess is she would marry their mother.
Everything was unique and very personal. and they all celebrated in the way they loved!
I don’t really wear jewelry, nor do I believe that the size of the engagement ring has anything to do with true love. Our rings are custom-made using a Japanese style called mokume-gane, which fuses layers of differently colored metals to form something completely unique.
4. Captain Matthew Phelps and Ben Schock
Captain Matthew Phelps proposed to his now fiance, on a White House tour they were invited to during Obama’s administration.
It all happened back in 2012, and the video went absolutely viral, partially because it was the Marine Corps’ first LGBTQ proposal in the White House.
I don’t feel like a gay-rights symbol. I feel like a Marine, a son, a brother, an uncle, a friend, and now, a fiance. I’ll soon learn how it feels to be a husband to an amazing man. I believe in my service, I believe in love, and I believe in equality. That doesn’t make me a symbol. It makes me a human.
5. Cross Hall and Liz Margolies
After one of Obama’s LGBTQ speeches during the Pride Month, transgender Cross Hall proposed to his girlfriend inside the White House.
Their video went viral, and although Liz waited a couple of seconds, she said YES!
Because the last three and a half years you have been an amazing adventure. Because you try harder than anyone else in the world. Because while I’m a little scared to spend the rest of my life with you, because you’re so damn fierce, I’m also amazingly excited by the possibility.
All these proposals remind us that in life, everything that matters is true love. There’s nothing more important than being able to spend the rest of your life with your soulmate!
