Gay man share's proposal online after his 'ashamed' mom begged him not to

The proposal took place during Disneyland’s Splash Mountain ride.

His mother didn’t want the rest of the world to know that her gay son was getting married because she was ‘ashamed’, so he posted the picture online to spite her.

Eugenius310 took to Reddit, an online discussion forum, to share an adorable snap of his engagement to his beau, Chris.

“I proposed to my beautiful and amazing boyfriend at Disneyland yesterday with the help of my niece and nephews who helped me make the sign a few months ago,” eugenius310 wrote on Reddit.

“He had no idea I was proposing and I told him that we should make ‘shocked’ faces for the camera.

“Little did he know I was going to be behind him proposing with a sign! I quickly hid the sign away after the drop and when we exited the ride we walked to see our photo and he was shocked.

“I got down on one knee and asked him to spend the rest of his life with me. He said, ‘Yes’.”

While the internet cooed over the adorable proposal, the user sadly revealed that his mother wasn’t in support of the potential matrimony.

“My mum told me not to post it on Facebook because she’s ashamed of me, so I’m posting it here for the world to see!” he admitted.

He further said that his mother is a devout Evangelical Christian from the Philippines and is very conservative.

“It's tough and I want to respect her wishes, but at the same time it was very upsetting to have her constantly bring it up all the while not even giving me congratulations or showing any sort of joy for what's supposed to be a happy moment,” he wrote.

Eugenius310’s story comes off the back of a report that two gay men were publicly flogged for allegedly having gay sex.

The incident took place in Indonesia and, once again, sheds light on the anti-gay laws of South-east Asian countries.

More than a thousand people cheered and hurled insults at the men, aged 20 and 23, as they received their lashes.

The men, who were handcuffed together and led to the stage where they were whipped, were arrested in March after they were caught having sex in their house by neighbours.

“These men were subjects of an ambush by their neighbours who stormed into their home, filmed them and handed them over to the Sharia police,” said Amnesty International’s Deputy Director for Southeast Asia and the Pacific, Josef Benedict.

“Every human being has a right to privacy, a right to enter consensual relations, and a right to physical protection.”
