Queerty Ever After: WATCH: Relive the best queer marriage proposals from TV

Listen to this article

Here come the grooms (and brides)! Queer representation on television has slowly but surely improved in recent history, and the same-sex spouses below have helped pave the way.

We’ve rounded up some of the most romantic same-sex marriage proposals from TV history, some of which predate U.S.-wide marriage equality. Check out the clips below and just try not to get a little misty-eyed.

Kurt & Blaine, Glee

Blaine took Kurt back to where it all began in this Fox musical dramedy — and we bet you can tell what Beatles song he sang.

Connor & Oliver, How to Get Away With Murder

Connor pops the question to Oliver under the sheets of a fort in this clip. (Plus, carbohydrates get a shout-out!)

Callie & Arizona, Grey’s Anatomy

Word to the wise: If you’re behind the wheel, pull over before proposing to your partner. Calzona’s engagement got off to a traumatic start on this ABC medical drama.

Magnus & Alec, Shadowhunters

For a marriage proposal in the middle of a literal hellscape, this popping of the question was surprisingly swoon-worthy.

Nomi & Amanita, Sense8

What’s better than one queer proposal? Two queer proposals back-to-back!

Kevin & Scotty, Brothers and Sisters

Before Matthew Rhys was Perry Mason or one of The Americans, he was proposing to Luke Mcfarlane on this ABC drama.

Jamal & Kai, Empire

Speaking of double proposals! (And coincidentally, Toby Onwumere — who plays Kai — was also a star of Sense8.)

Stefon & Seth Meyers, Saturday Night Live

[Stefon voice] Yes yes yes yes yes… This love story has everything: Smurfs, ALF, DJ Baby Bok Choy, a jilted Anderson Cooper

David & Patrick, Schitt’s Creek

Relive Patrick’s proposal to David — and their romance leading up to the big moment — in the video above.
