SHE SAID YES: Girlfriend Of Brazilian Olympic Rugby Player Isadora Cerullo Proposes As Team Cheers

Roughly translated from ABC España:

The gold medal-winning Australian female rugby delegation isn’t alone in celebrating. Isadora Cerullo, who plays for Brazil, tonight received a marriage proposal from her partner, who works as a volunteer for the Rio Games. The proposal was accepted and sealed with a kiss in front of journalists from around the world. The proposal took place during the closing ceremony of the women’s rugby competition where Australia, New Zealand, and Canada won gold, silver, and bronze, respectively. Unfortunately the Brazilian team finished in ninth place, although the proposal immediately caught the attention of those attending the closing ceremony: journalists, athletes, and the public. Same-sex marriage was legalized in Brazil in 2013. Yet the country still lives immersed in the process of visibility and normalization.

    Delta would have censored the kiss part.

    BTW, did anybody notice that Delta came to a screeching halt today and left thousands of passengers stranded right after they showed the heavily-censored version of ‘Carol’? Karma?

    • johncAtl

      Delta is a pretty gay-friendly company. The day after the Supreme Court ruled on Obergefell the Delta electronic billboards in Atlanta were running pro-LGBT ads all day long. And their onboard safety videos have quite a few gays in them. And, one of the top execs at Delta is a gay man.

    • karen in kalifornia

      It was the official “airplane” edit version. Delta didn’t do it. Delta policy is no nudity, so that meant in Carol’s case, the kisses went too because they where edited out of the airline version. You all have been watching edited/censored “airline” versions of films for years in case you didn’t know it.

    Speaking of LGBT Olympians. This is Amini Fonua and he’s an out gay Tongan swimmer. (So many interesting Tongan athletes this year!) It’s hard to see in the photo, but supposedly his swimsuit has the words “gay and lesbian” written over his butt.×314.jpg

    • Roger

      And still in the matter of out LGBT Olympians the extra cute Tom Daley scored a Bronze medal today along his diving companion Danniel Goodfellow.
      And Tom´s fianceé Mr Dustin Lance Black was there to cheer his extra cute loved one.

    • sequel

      they’ve updated their list. 45 now, including mr fonua.

    • Gigi

      Tonga is looking more and more appealing to me as a tourist destination.

    • Todd20036

      To be fair, it wasn’t his suit I was concentrating on, but his chest, back and butt.
      And I suppose the rest of you just want to recite poetry to him in front of a fireplace while sipping earl grey tea….

      • SilasMarner

        We can do that afterwards, wink, wink, nudge, nudge, ya know what I mean.

    “We’re here, we’re queer, get used to it.”

    Old chant, but it’s still my favorite. Congratulations to the happy couple. And to be honest that was brave and brazen and awesome.

    • TuuxKabin

      Heard/saw a new version of it: “We’re queer, we’re here, we will not live in fear”, from the Manchester Equality/Pride Day, in the “I Just Wanna Fuckin’ Dance” video.

    • perversatile

    I just saw a commercial during Olympics for University of Phoenix, of all things, that had a lesbian couple. And there were rainbow flags. I expect some sadz from the usual people.

    Sometimes I can’t fully believe how far we’ve come. There are many, many miles left to travel, but still, this does my heart good.

  • Gigi

    This is so beautiful! Maybe it’s time that my man and I tie the knot. We’re been happily together for 27 years. Still deciding if it’ll work out. 😉

  • Silver Badger

    Straight or gay, this is way too much pressure to put on a prospective spouse. What if she had said no?

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Mazel Tov!!!!

  • SilasMarner

    The christianists must have sat in front of their TVs and spit and sputtered and literally foamed at the mouth over this lovely display of love.

  • big congrats to both of them….what a happy moment!!!!!!! so cool that this can now happen and that they can now marry.
