Over 48,000 marchers gathered to celebrate the New York City Pride parade on Sunday but what they did not expect was a proposal.
In the middle of the parade route, EMT Trudy Bermudez knelt down and proposed to her girlfriend paramedic Tayreen Bonilla. And a shocked Bonilla accepted with a resounding "yes."

The pair met through their jobs with the New York Fire Department four and a half years ago. They’ve been together for a year and a half. Bermudez says she began planning the proposal around six months ago. At first, she was concerned that doing it at Pride would be too cliché, but eventually decided that it was the right fit.
After the proposal, the two were met with cheers from LGBTQ parade-goers.
"We’re proud of who we are, and we’re very happy, and I wanted to share that with whoever enjoys happiness," Bermudez said.
