Gay couple whose engagement went viral is to tie the knot at the Pride Parade


The gay couple who got engaged on live TV and became a sensation worldwide, reveals their wedding plans. James Brechney proposed to his partner of two and a half years, Stuart Henshall, as the postal vote results were announced in Australia. James wrote on Instagram that the two will become husbands in March 2018, during the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. It will be a historic wedding because no couple ever tied the knot at such an event in Australia, just because it was illegal. “We’ve set a date – Saturday 3 March 2018!! We’re going to say ‘I Do’ as we cross over the site of the rainbow crossing at Taylor Square on our Mardi Gras Float!!! 🌈🎉❤️#fullcircle”. James, who founded LGBT activist group DIY Rainbow, explained that this event and this place is special for them: “In 2013, when the government tore up the rainbow crossing [on Oxford Street], I chalked a rainbow crossing behind my terrace house. People started chalking rainbows all over the world, and it ended up going viral,” the groom-to-be said, “So we’ll be getting married right at the moment the float crosses over that rainbow crossing – so it’s all come full circle!”
