Australian MP Proposes to Boyfriend During Same-Sex Marriage Debate

Marriage equality was recently made a reality in Australia, ending a years-long fight. It sparked a worldwide celebration for the momentous step forward. Although they gave us Kylie Minogue years ago, the island continent now gives us gays another reason to be proud.

One such gay man celebrated in a big way. Australian MP Tim Wilson took time out from a recent parliament debate over same-sex marriage to show his appreciation for his partner, Ryan Bolger. He used his platform to ask a very important question.

“The person I have to thank most is my partner, Ryan. You’ve had to tolerate the most because you’ve had to put up with me. This debate has been the soundtrack to our relationship In my first speech, I defined our bond by the ring that sits on both of our left hands – that they are the answer to the questions we cannot ask. So, there’s only one thing left to do: Ryan Patrick Bolger, will you marry me?”

Bolger nodded yes with a smile. Every other flash mob marriage proposal is now officially obsolete.
