Orlando Cruz and Jose Manuel

In 2012, Orlando Cruz became the first working professional boxer to come out as gay. The Puerto Rican sensation said at the time, "I have and always will be a proud Puerto Rican. I have and always will be a proud gay man." In August of last year, Cruz made headlines again for getting engaged to his boyfriend, Jose Manuel, via a short film he posted to his website.
