Rufus Wainwright - Rufus Wainwright Makes Marriage Plans After New York Law Change

Gay singer Rufus Wainwright is forging ahead with plans to wed his partner Jorn Weisbrodt after officials in his adopted New York made it legal for same-sex couples to marry.
The singer has been an outspoken advocate of gay rights since meeting his theatre producer partner, who he credits with his newfound desire to settle down.
Wainwright and Weisbrodt, who reside in the Big Apple, got engaged in November (10) and after New York politicians passed a bill allowing gay partners to wed last month (Jun11), Wainwright has accepted he will finally walk down the aisle.
He tells British TV show Lorraine, "I'm engaged, and me and my partner live in New York and they just passed gay marriage in New York and I was like, 'God damn it, now we really have to do this.'"
