Conan Officiates First Same-Sex Marriage On Late-Night TV

Last night, Conan O’Brien, who has been in New York City all week taping his show, officiated the first same-sex marriage on late night television. In front of a studio audience at the Beacon Theater, he wed the show’s costume designer Scott Cronick and his partner David Gorshein; Bravo’s Andy Cohen walked Cronick down the aisle. “Conan” is usually filmed in California, where gay marriage is not legal, hence the decision to wed Cronick and Gorshein in New York, which legalized same-sex marriage under the Marriage Equality Act in July of this year. I didn’t expect to be teary — this is “Conan” after all — but damn if I didn’t need a tissue. [Team Coco]
