Yet another moment of history in the Obama White House – but this probably had less to do with the President’s LGBT Pride Reception and more with, well, LOVE! Last Friday, June 15, with the Marine band playing in the background, Scout, the trans Ph.D director of Network for LGBT Health Equity at The Fenway Institute, proposed to his girlfriend, Liz Margolies. The Huffington Post reported:
“I memorized some things but I kind of forgot half of them,” Scout told The Huffington Post right after. He listed some 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.”
“All I remember hearing is, ‘You’ll be a better person,’” Margolies said.
