On Saturday 31 March 2013, Lead singer of the band Garbage,  Shirley Manson,  paused in the middle of their concert at Detroit’s  Majestic Theater to let a fan propose to his boyfriend onstage.

The band invited Dominic on stage, Shirley explained how Dominic had been supportive of a sick friend to the band, even flying out to a benefit for the friend. She said, "As it happens I was on my Facebook page yesterday, I was on the tour bus and I was going through messages as we do, I saw this message from your boyfriend, Scott, and he told me that you were really super amazing."

Shirley Manson then brought Scott out, who got down on his knees and proposed to  
Dominic, his boyfriend of four years.

The crowd erupted into cheers. As the crowd cheers, you hear Dominic shouting "Yes".

Michigan in 2004 passed a constitutional amendment to ban equal marriage. In 2013 the crowd cheers a gay couple proposing on stage.

It's coming.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
