Harry proposed to Lance through a flash mob at The Frying Pan, pictured, a historic lightship now serving as a restaurant and bar in New York City. Charalambos Mavromichalis writes on YouTube, where the below video was posted: “Lance had no idea what was happening, thinking that we were there for a friend’s birthday brunch.” 


The Huffington Post reports that the large-scale flash mob consisted of more than 90 dancers from Pace and Marymount colleges. Lance Boyd thought that he and his boyfriend Harry were merely going to a friend’s birthday brunch. Little did he know that Harry had been planning a huge flash mob wedding proposal for months.

“It was the most amazing thing that anyone has ever done for me. It made me feel like the most loved and adored person in the world,” Boyd told The Huffington Post. “But more than that, in the weeks that followed, what I came to realize was that for the first time in the entirety of our relationship I felt I could finally exhale. I know that sounds cliche, but like so many gay men I have always struggled against the feelings of not being worthy of a loving relationship. With his very public declaration of love Harry changed all that. I finally know what it means to be loved!”
