Best LGBT weddings and proposals of 2018
If the past 12 months have shown anything, it’s that the LGBT+ community sure knows how to put on a good proposal—and stage a dazzling wedding.
These LGBT+ weddings and proposals have taken on a myriad of fabulous forms, from Harry Potter-themed lesbian engagements to a gay couple’s perfectly synchronised first dance.
Still, with all this love in the air, it’s important to remember that there is a long way to go before we achieve marriage equality worldwide.
Same-sex marriage is legal in just 25 countries across the globe, which means there are 170 nations where there is no equal marriage.
As 2018 draws to an end, PinkNews takes a look at the best LGBT+ weddings and proposals.
From gorgeous lesbian weddings to heartwarming gay proposals, read on below.
Gay porn stars get engaged after filming orgy scene together
Gay porn star couple Brian Bonds and Mason Lear got engaged in July— immediately after filming a gang bang scene together.
Bonds popped the question to Lear straight after the pair had finished filming an orgy scene.
In an explicit video posted on Twitter, a visibly excited Bonds, who is already down on his knees, says: “Well, this is the end of our tour and I can say that this was probably the best day that ever happened between us. And I’d love to do it over and over again, but there is one difference that I want.”
Pulling out a box with a ring, he adds: “I want you wearing this.”
Lesbian couple film Harry Potter-themed engagement
In November, proud Slytherin fan Heather Pearson proposed to her girlfriend and fellow Potterhead Kelsey Stacey in Portland, Oregon, USA.
The couple both already owned wands and Slytherin cloaks, and in the run-up to the proposal Pearson convinced her fiancée-to-be to help plan a Harry Potter-themed Halloween party.
Pearson sent her girlfriend on a Harry Potter scavenger hunt across Portland, where Stacey was surprised by her friends and the first three Harry Potter books containing personalised love letters from Harry Potter character Draco Malfoy.
She found the fourth book, the couple’s favourite, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, back at their apartment, where Pearson was waiting, dressed as Draco Malfoy.
Pearson pulled out a ring and the copy of Goblet of Fire, which had been creatively folded so that the pages spelled out “Marry me?”
Stacy emotionally accepted the proposal to cheers from the pair’s friends.
