MTV’s new reality series Promposal takes viewers into the elaborate world of prom proposals in the US—where teenagers go to extraordinary lengths to invite their crush to the end of year dance.

The series premiered this week and will focus on six different proposals—including a same-sex couple from North Carolina, Noah Ambrose and Brandon Caddell.

“Asking Noah to prom was something I’ll remember for the rest of my life. When I was contacted by MTV about being featured on their newest show, I was incredibly excited,” says Brandon.

“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.

“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,” he added. 

His boyfriend Noah added that their inclusion in the Promposal series was important for young people in the LGBT+ community.

“Brandon and I spend most of our free time volunteering with advocacy groups, like Equality NC, the NAACP, the Human Rights Campaign, Sandhills Pride, and the Democratic Party, to promote equal rights for everyone, including LGBT youth like us.

“Our passion for activism made us happy to share our story.
