WATCH: Drag Superstar Gets Engaged on Stage

Frank Marino, the longest-running headliner in Las Vegas, got engaged earlier this week in front of a live audience during his Divas show.

Marino has been the star of Divas, a popular female impersonation show that includes takes on everyone from Katy Perry to Madonna, for a quarter of a decade. The author, columnist, and newscaster was in the middle of a Divas performance on Tuesday — now hosted at Caesar's Quad Resort and Casino — when his longtime partner, associate producer Alex Schechter, got down on one knee. Inspired by the Supreme Court tossing out California's Proposition 8 and the antigay Defense of Marriage Act, Schechter decided now was the time to pull the trigger.

The couple celebrated their 20th anniversary on Independence Day, but haven't yet decided on when or where they'll tie the knot (Nevada doesn't yet recognize same-sex marriage, but California is a short drive away).

Watch video of the proposal below.
