This story is so 2013. Orlando Cruz, the Puerto Rican professional boxer, proposed marriage to his boyfriend by the way of a video on Facebook. While he’s been out of the closet for months, this was another step forward for homosexual athletes. And since he fights for a living, I doubt anyone is going to have anything negative to say about this. To his face, at least.

And further good news to report: His boyfriend, Jose Manuel, said Yes. How did he deliver his affirmative response? By Facebook video, of course.
Even just a couple years ago, this would be a huge story. Today, it hardly makes a ripple. Progress.
