When Conan O’Brien Married Us on Live TV

An excellent piece on bettyconfidential.com written by Scott Cronick, who was married to his partner David Gorshein on Conan:

“Gay marriage” is a national issue — and Conan offered us international exposure. Conan put on stage in one state a celebration of love outlawed in another state. Celebrating our wedding as not only dignified and legitimate but indeed a monumental occasion, Conan provided a mainstream endorsement, as Andy Cohen points out in his blog. Our wedding in this way participates in larger discussions about both the huge strides made throughout the country and the miles left to go federally.

After the broadcast, we hid out in Battery Park for a weekend honeymoon. We are planning a longer getaway up the coast of California next week. Still, in our state of residence, where we are celebrating, we cannot legally wed and are fighting for recognition of our nuptials in New York. We are fighting for rights and privileges in California afforded to all other married couples, regardless of where they marry in the U.S.
