Brittanyleighski says: "We went to Disneyland for our three year anniversary. He said he had a surprise for me. Just a small gift he said. I thought we were just getting our caricature done. There were more videos before the actual proposal. It was fun because I got to geek out with the employees the whole time about Doctor Who, OUAT, Firefly, and Harry Potter!"
Although gay marriage has no official status in Japan, this week Tokyo Disneyland announced it would begin allowing same-sex couples to wed on their property. This decision came after 27-year-old Koyuki Higashi inquired if it would be permitted for her to marry her partner there. This announcement is considered groundbreaking in a country where homosexuality is still a taboo topic. Via The Guardian:
Higashi and her partner have visited Disneyland to break their good news to Mickey Mouse, but have yet to set a date for the wedding. "Mickey first looked surprised to hear that we are a couple of girls," she said on her blog. "But we said we were there to thank him … and he celebrated with us."
Disney really does make dreams come true!
