Will You...

It's almost a cliché at this point that a little girl dreams of opening a Tiffany blue box from her beau when he finally pops the question. But what about the boys who dream of being proposed to by their beaus?

For the first time, Tiffany & Co. is featuring a gay couple in its latest engagement campaign, who are not models but an actual real life couple from NYC, relaxing on the front stoop of their apartment.

"Nowadays, the road to marriage is no longer linear, and true love can happen more than once with love stories coming in a variety of forms," said Linda Buckley, Tiffany & Co. VP of North American PR, in a statement to ELLE.com. "The Tiffany engagement ring is the first sentence of the story that a couple will write together as they create a life that is deeply intimate and exceptional, which is the message we hope to convey through this campaign."

Of course, we're looking forward to the day when the LGBT community is so universally accepted, that ads like these will call for little fanfare. But today, it's very exciting to see yet another iconic brand take a step in that direction. And can I just say, what a gorgeous couple!
