Openly Gay Army Ranger asks Katy Perry to Ranger Ball.

We thought we had reached a saturation point with those average-person-asks-celebrity-to-prom videos, but this openly gay ranger with a bit of a crush on the Candy Queen, Katy Perry, has won us over.

“I am the first and only gay ranger in the unit that I’m with and your music really helped me get through,” says Ken Yasger in the video, standing in front of an American flag. Yasger, who has “Wide Awake” set as his alarm, talks about how Miss Perry’s music would help him when he was feeling down. His buddies, with love, frequently make fun of his musical interests, but that doesn’t stop him from asking KP to the Ranger Ball on October 10th.

Shockingly, most of the comments made on the YouTube video (above) were supportive, which may be the first time that has happened in the history of the internet.

Hey Ken, if you don’t hear back from Katycat, I have a feeling plenty of our readers would love to be your date.


Which musical artist has helped y'all when you were down in the dumps?
For me Kelly Clarkson's Breakaway and My December forever hold a spot in my heart for helping me come to terms with my sexuality and got me through my first real breakup.
