Darren Hayes - Darren Hayes Weds For A Third Time

Gay singer Darren Hayes has wed his partner for a third time to show solidarity for same-sex couples fighting for equal marriage rights around the world.

The former Savage Garden frontman exchanged vows with Richard Cullen in California on Monday (15Jul13), just weeks after officials at America's Supreme Court struck down the country's controversial Defense of Marriage Act and overturned California's Proposition 8 legislation.

The couple enjoyed a private wedding in 2005, and entered into a Civil Partnership in the U.K. in 2006, and they decided to head down the aisle once again to show their support for the activists who fought for a change in the law.

In a post on Facebook.com, Hayes writes, "I'm so happy to be able to say I just married my best friend - again. Only this time perhaps in the most equal sense under the law... It's the third time we've married each other but the first time we've been equal under the law in all ways including by name to all other marriages... We got married... to support and express gratitude to the brave people around the world who have stood up for people like us. The ability to marry in the United States is a tremendous civil right and one we believe everyone in the world should have access to. We were married today to say thanks for the tireless work activists and human rights campaigners globally have given to equal rights. We got married to be an example for all those who are in equally committed relationships yet can't yet enjoy this basic protection under the law."
