He said yes!
Brian Rafferty wanted the perfect moment to surprise his boyfriend, Dan Welden, with an engagement ring. The international nightlife producer, who produces the official NYC Pride parties, knew that popping the question at the pier dance closing party of NYC Pride would be priceless.
Surrounded by family, friends and thousands of NYC Pride revelers, Brian got down on one knee and proposed to Dan. After saying yes, Brian slipped a sleek Cartier ring (oh my!) on Dan’s finger. Their special moment was broadcast live on the big screen for all to see.
“I still can’t get over this. This is what sheer happiness looks like,” Brian wrote on a Facebook post after the engagement.
Brian and Dan recently celebrated their one-year anniversary together.
In addition to NYC Pride, Brian is the owner of the Trade party brand and produces gay parties all over the world.
