Gay acrobat proposes to boyfriend live on Italian TV
A first in Italy – a gay couple got engaged live on Italian TV.
The conservative country does not recognize any type of same-sex unions so the gay proposal is such a groundbreaking moment. It happened Live on ‘Italia’s Got Talent’ TV show after a troupe of acrobatic dancers ‘Les Farfadais’ performed a routine to “The Power of Love”. One of the dancers then got down on one knee and proposed to his boyfriend who said “yes” then the two kissed on stage.
The judges were as shocked as the audience, who went wild and cheered for the lovely couple in what the producers claim was totally unrehearsed and unexpected.
Said the show’s host: “I swear that this marriage proposal was not in the lineup.”
