Conan O’Brien Officiates Gay Wedding in… Sigh… New York

Conan O’Brien officiated the marriage of Conan costume designer Scott Cronick and his partner David Gorshein last night on live TV. And it was actually quite beautiful. Conan toned himself down as much as we have ever seen and presided over a short but touching ceremony.

Conan may not have the mainstream audience of The Tonight Show anymore, but we’re pretty sure there are a whole lot of people in his fan base who have never seen anything like this live before. We’re guessing there are quite a few gay teenagers in Texas or Mississippi today who feel a whole lot more hopeful for their future thanks to this show. Too bad Conan had to go all the way to New York to do it. Wasn’t Prop 8 overturned? Can we speed up the whole legalized gay marriage in California thing already? We’re guessing Cronick can’t be the only gay costume designer here in LA who’s looking to get hitched in front of a nationally televised audience.
