With the Supreme Court overturning the Defense of Marriage Act and Prop 8, gay couples across the land have started planning their weddings. Why shouldn’t LGBT celebrities get in on the action as well? To quote US magazine, “stars, they’re just like us.” Neil Patrick Harris revealed to E! News over the weekend, that marriage will be inevitable with David Burtka, his fiance of seven years. One gay actor didn’t waste anytime and wed his partner yesterday.
John Barrowman of Torchwood fame tied the knot with his long-time partner Scott Gill. The couple previously entered into a civil partnership in the UK on December 27, 2006. It’s about time the 46-year-old actor made an honest man out of Gill. After 20 years together, it’s definitely long overdue. Like I should talk, Brian and I have been together for 13 years and it’s been legal to marry here for ages ;)
“We’re getting married in the state of California. Thank you Supreme Court, about time you made it legal. See you after we have the ceremony!” the Doctor Who actor shared via a video on WhoSay. Later in the day, the couple added, “We are now legally married. Thanks for all your great wishes. JB and Scott.” Check out the happy couple posing with their marriage certificate below, along with their video announcement and an impromptu duet of Air Supply’s “I’m All Out Love.” Love that song.
Congrats to the happy couple. I’ve been a fan of Barrowman for years. Most recently he appeared on The CW’s Arrow and ABC’s Scandal. His next project has him hosting ABC’s new summer competition series, Sing Your Face Off. Which gay celebrity will walk down the aisle next? Sound off below.
