U.S. late-night TV host Conan O'brien officiated the wedding of his costume designer Scott Cronick and his partner David Gorshein during his live show in New York on Thursday (03Nov11). O'Brien was ordained at the Universal Life Church for the ceremony.
Last night, America experienced a monumenetal moment in television history: Conan O'Brien performed an actual gay wedding ceremony at the end of his talk show, Conan. The show, ordinarily based out of Los Angeles, has been shooting in New York, where gay marriage is legal, since Monday. Conan was ordained as a minister for the ceremony, which united the show's costume designer Scott Cronick and his new husband David Gorshein. I'm not usually big on televised weddings, but everything this says about where we've come as a society is pretty awesome.
