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]

Is there anything cuter than an old married couple who are still in love? Reverend Kathryn Cartledge and Elizabeth Eve have 30 years together, but cannot be legally married in their home state because of bigotry against gays. This ‘We Do’ campaign video of the North Carolinian lesbians applying for a marriage license and then holding a sit-in at the clerk’s office until they get arrested has me wiping the tears off my cheeks. Have tissues handy when you watch it! [Queerty] Keep reading »

Amber Heard Is In A Relationship With A Woman, But Isn’t A Lesbian

“To say I came out implies that I was once in. Let me be straight about that—no pun intended—I never came out from anywhere. I’ve always lived my life the way I’ve wanted and have been honest with myself and everyone around me. It didn’t really affect anything in my career. I don’t think the producers and directors I’ve worked with care one way or another … I don’t want to be labeled as one thing or another. In the past I’ve had successful relationships with men, and now I’m in this successful relationship with a woman. When it comes to love I am totally open. And I don’t want to be put into a category, as in ‘I’m this’ or ‘I’m that.’ … [Gay marriage] is an important issue, and I’m fighting for the right to get married. For other people.”

Amber Heard of “The Playboy Club” explains to Playboy magazine that while she is in a three year relationship with a woman, photographer Tasya Van Ree, she doesn’t want to be categorized as bisexual or lesbian. I understand what she’s saying, but I have to wonder if the fact that she’s an actress playing largely straight roles has anything to do with her hesitance here. [ONTD, Playboy] Keep reading »
