6 Same-Sex Paparazzi Proposals

Lesbian Proposal

There’s no wrong way to propose your endless love and devotion to your partner, but there are some ways that just feel so right. We asked the folks at Paparazzi Proposals for some pointers on how to propose like a superstar, and they sent over a few of their most show-stopping LGBTQ marriage proposals.

Lesbian Proposal

1. Amita & Kristen

Amita met Kristen on the street corner of 13th and Lotus in Philadelphia. And “coincidently” passing by that same street corner, Amita proposed, almost 11 years later.


Gay Couple Proposal

2. Matt & Jake

Matt waited for Jake to turn around before getting down on one knee and surprising him with an engagement ring. He chose Central Park because of their mutual love for nature and the outdoors and all the memories they have shared in it. Like other same-sex couples, they are most excited to begin the next phase of their lives together by making a public profession of their love and commitment to each other through marriage.
