Two British Knights relish gay rights in a Vine video.

Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi have plenty of reasons to be happy. The two prominent actors and gay rights advocates are marshals in New York City's pride parade this Sunday. Their Vine video featured a faux engagement, glitter, Stonewall Inn t-shirts, and the voice of Queen's Freddie Mercury playing in the background. That's a lot of pride packed into six seconds.

This weekend's pride parade will mark memorable roles for two very deserving gentlemen.
