This Polo Player’s Boyfriend Proposed With Some ‘Cheeky’ Help From His Teammates
One day after Australia announced its postal survey results supporting marriage equality, an Australian man proposed to his partner at a water polo game with a little help from some teammates.
On Wednesday night, Mark Keevers was there in the stands like always to support his boyfriend Andrew (also known as “Rusty” by his team). Andrew plays for the gay water polo team, the Melbourne Surge.
At the end of the game, Mark walked over and wrapped a rainbow towel around Andrew, while Jess Glynne’s song “Hold My Hand” began to play in the background.
“We wake up to that song every day,” Mark told the Star Observer. “Wherever we go we always hold hands because we both love each other, and we’re proud of that.”
But the towel and song weren’t the only part of the surprise proposal. Eight of Andrew’s teammates then quickly stripped down into speedos with letters on the backsides that spelled out, “Marry me?”
