"I love him very dearly as he has made me feel so comfortable being a Black queer man," Ross said in an interview with Out. "He said to me, 'You want to do this with me?' And I said, 'Absolutely and forever.'"
Ross and Madrick first met 11 years ago and had been dating for three years before they decided to take their relationship to the next level.
Ross proposed back in July in their home accompanied by photographer Laiken Joy and designer Jean Dousset who helped make the engagement everything Ross and Madrick wanted.

Actress Jena Malone shared a video of her performing an interpretive dance with a caption regarding her journey with gender identity.
“I guess it felt like I was a heterosexual man in a woman’s body. I visualized his desires and placed them on to me. But this, was never the whole of the story that was meant for me,” she wrote. “My sexual identity has more to teach and to tell me. Finding words that feel more right to explore in my telling. Pansexuality. Sapiosexuality. Polyamory.”
Malone had two moms growing up and her sister made note of that by commenting on Malone’s post saying, “Looks like we’re a whole family of queers huh?”
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter Malone said, “I’ve been loving the process of learning more about myself and others through different terms that open windows, those windows then turn into doors and then I arrive at a place to find all this cool stuff out there. I love getting to learn more about myself no matter the age or my experience.”
