In what will be sure to go down as one of the most elaborate marriage proposals ever, a gay Canadian actor popped the question to his boyfriend in a very theatrical way.
Patrick Stiles, who recently starred in Royal City Musical Productions' staging of Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat," organized a grand flashmob with his castmates to the tune of Mika's "Love Today." As his partner Mike Kennedy beamed, Stiles segued into a heartfelt version of Elton John's "Your Song" before dropping to one knee.
Stiles, who appropriately described the event as "life-changing," told the Guelph Mercury, "With gay relationships, I actually didn't know what the protocol was for who proposes. How do you know whose job it is?"
Earlier this year, a gay Salt Lake City man staged a colorful flashmob to propose to his boyfriend at a local Home Depot.
