Last night, Conan O’Brien took his show on the road from LA to New York City for the purpose of officiating late night television’s first ever live, on the air, same sex wedding. The people getting married? Conan costume designer Scott Cronick and his partner David Gorshein.
Conan being Conan, he cracked a few jokes, but once they got down to business it was unexpectedly touching. These two men clearly love each other very much, and it was sweet to see how they adapted Jewish traditions to accommodate a same sex marriage. This lovely televised ceremony is just one more stake planted in the pop culture landscape in favor of equality and against outdated, wrongheaded, religion-based bigotry. Good job, CoCo!
