Last night’s Attitude Awards had a beautiful surprise.
Last month, Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK introduced the world to their Brit Crew. And among the group of very exposed men was Matt Lister. And now, it appears that Matt is making headlines again. This time for an even more personal reason and a much, much happier one.
While at the Attitude Awards last night, Matt appeared in full Brit Crew garb. Meaning, nothing but a pair of Union Jack shorts. But what was assumed to be a fun but simple night of awards show pageantry ended up being a stunning, life-changing event for Lister.
Lister came up to the stage to help announce the winner of a charity raffle. But when he did, he was surprised to see his boyfriend chosen to pick the lucky ticket. After Darren Styles, the magazine’s owner, called his boyfriend up, Lister jokingly began to twerk for the man. But upon turning back around, he was surprised to see his lover down on one knee. The room then broke out into applause.

So I was expecting to write a cute post about how fab last nights @attitudemag awards were. Meeting icons and idols alike, fan girling left right and centre… But instead, my boyfriend and best friend asked me if I’d marry him, clearly I was the very last person in the room to catch up with what was actually happening but of course I said yes. @ben_fr_uk I’m not going to gush here too much because I know that’s not your style at all. But I love you and I will never ever EVER forget this day… or that you still didn’t put your hand in my bucket. 🤣🤣😭😭😭 OMG FEYONCÉ’S!!! Thank you to @junodawson and @trickfrees for capturing the entire mess, @peppermint247 and @courtneyact for ALL those reactions, @samsmith @cherylofficial and @christineandthequeens for agreeing unknowingly to sing at the wedding, which will be ordained by @helloross and @joancollinsdbe as well as a very generous donation of an all expenses paid honeymoon courtesy of @virginatlantic (I had a few drinks, I may have some of these facts a bit mixed up…😂🤪😭) I’m so overwhelmed, Ben you make me so happy and I cannot wait to spend the rest of our lives together xxxxxxxx
