Chicago Bulls Game – Gay Man Proposes and He Says Yes

At center court during the Chicago Bulls’ game against the San Antonio Spurs last before last, Jake Conrad popped the question to his boyfriend Michael Holtzman. This is thought to be the first gay couple to become engaged at an NBA game.

“At the Chicago Bulls game vs. the San Antonio Spurs on December 8, the Bulls worked with Jake Conrad to set up an in-game proposal for his partner, Michael Holtzman. Michael has been a lifelong Bulls fan and watches every game. After he once told Jake that his dream was to go to a Bulls game, Jake knew he wanted to propose to Michael at a game to show him how committed he is to making Michael’s dreams come true."

As we will be challenged during the Trump administration to keep the gains we have made, we have to remember that there are plenty of Americans all over our country from all walks of life who are committed to what we believe in.
