FREAKSHOW: Transgender “Man” Proposes To Sweetheart at White House Gay Pride Event [Video]

Original Article - FREAKSHOW: Transgender “Man” Proposes To Sweetheart at White House Gay Pride Event [Video]

Scout and Liz Margolies

Scout, a transgender man who was attending a White  House event celebrating Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month,  decided to show how much he supported President Obama’s recent support for gay  marriage.  He dropped to one knee and proposed to his long time sweetheart  Liz Margolies.

Scout (whose name is legally just the one word), had been planning to propose  at this event at the White House for more than a year.  He only had to  figure out where to do it when he got there.  So right after President  Obama addressed the crowd and everyone was standing around having some champagne  he dropped to one knee and proposed.

Scout said he memorized some of the things he wanted to say but forgot  others.

Scout told the  Huffington Post minutes after his proposal,

“I memorized some things but I kind of forgot half of them. Because the last  three and a half years, you have been an amazing adventure. Because you try  harder than anyone in the world. Because while I’m a little scared to spend the  rest of my life with you, because you’re so damn fierce, I’m also amazingly  excited about the possibility.”

Margolies said in the interview,

“All I remember hearing is, ‘You’ll be a better person,’”

Margolies, who is executive director of the National LGBT Cancer Network, has  long told people of her opposition to the institution of marriage in the first  place.  She recently told scout about the pair of turtles who divorced each  other after 115 years together.

Margolies asked Scout,

“Did you hear about the turtles  that divorced after 115 years?”

Scout interrupted her and said,

“Screw that!”

Right after Scout proposed and Margolies had accepted she was standing there  showing off her brand new gold engagement ring and reporter s who knew of her  opposition to marriage  asked her if she would actually go through with it  and she seemed to already have melted to the idea.

Margolies said,

“I’m engaged!”
