A gay teenage couple from North Carolina will be appearing on an episode of MTV’s new series, Promposal.
Noah Ambrose and Brandon Caddell from Pinecrest, North Carolina will be featured on the show, which highlights the imaginative lengths some high schoolers will go to just to ask their significant other to prom.
“This was a great opportunity for us to show everyone it is possible to be out and happy in a small community in a state like North Carolina,” Caddell told The Pilot.
“Asking Noah to prom was something I’ll remember for the rest of my life,” he said. “When I was contacted by MTV about being featured on their newest show, I was incredibly excited. Too many LGBT teenagers have to live their lives in the closet and aren’t able to ask the person they care about to prom.”
Ambrose and Caddell are young activists, having bonded over their love of volunteering. Together for a year now, they jointly work with advocacy groups like Equality NC, the NAACP and Sandhills Pride.
“Our passion for activism made us happy to share our story,” said Ambrose. “We want to let people know LGBT couples are just as normal and just as deserving of respect as any other couple.”
The power couple run Moore County’s only high school Gay-Straight Alliance. Ambrose is its president and Caddell his vice president.
And it’s a good thing that they remain so self-assured, because they’re certainly still the targets of insults and judgment from students and staff.
These hardships, their Christian faith and their activism around HB2 will all be featured on Promposal.
