Race Walker Tom Bosworth has just proposed to his boyfriend Harry- and he said yes! The pair got engaged on Rio’s famous Copacabana beach.

Taking to social media, Tom said,

“He said yes!”

Speaking to THEGAYUK before he left the UK for Rio Bosworth said, that if Heathrow had the right ring he’d buy it to make his boyfriend an “honest man!”

Bosworth came 6th in his game – but managed to break a British record in the sport of Race walking.

Speaking about how the pair met Bosworth told THEGAYUK,

“My female friend decided to hit on him. She quite liked the look of him.

“Me and my other friend were sat there trying not to laugh as we quite clearly could see that he perhaps didn’t bat for that team (laughs).

“She got very offended when he said, “You’re not my type.” He was trying to be polite.

“She couldn’t understand why and it was at that point that I walked up to my friend and said, “I think he’s probably more my type, than your type.”

“We got talking from there. The rest is history.”

A note from the editor.

These are tough times for us all. Without a doubt. But we're here for you and want to continue being here for you for the foreseeable future. needs your help to survive. Due to the nature of the articles that we publish, we find it very hard to monetize our site and have been heavily restricted by ad platforms. This leaves us two ways of making money to keep this site going. 1) We run an online shop which we encourage you to visit and if you can make a purchase and 2) We run popup shops at the prides we media partner with. As you'll no doubt be aware the majority of pride events have been cancelled or postponed for 2020, which leaves our site at risk of closure.

Around 70 per cent of our funding comes from these popup shops. So we have a severe funding shortfall for 2020.

If just 100 people who use this site each donated £2 per month we'd be able to pay for the hosting for the rest of the year - meaning we can continue to keep THEGAYUK online. Please, if you can, consider donating £2 or whatever you can to keep us going.

Thank you.
