Gay marriage is finally legal in the UK, which means lots of couples are now able to tie the knot… and about fucking time, too! People are starting to take advantage of having basic human rights, and Elton John and longtime partner David Furnish are ready to get in on the fun, too!
From the Las Vegas Review Journal:
“We don’t feel the need to take an extra step legally. But since we’re committed for life, we feel it’s really important to take that step, and take advantage of that amazing change in legislation. We all live by example,” Furnish said.
I told him I was surprised he and Elton don’t want to throw another big wedding party.
“We do like big parties,” Furnish said. “Over eight years ago, we had 650 people on the 21st of December at our house in Windsor.
“But with the kids, everything is different. I think what we’ll do is go to a registry office in England in May, and take the boys with us, and a couple of witnesses.”
The wedding is scheduled for May, which is about the best you’re gonna get of summer weather in the UK if you’re outside of London. Don’t forget they were apparently going to throw a big gay wedding in Los Angeles last year, but apparently that never happened. It’ll be better for them this time around.
Congrats to them, and to all the couples who can now tie the knot!
