Former Village People star Randy Jones is a married man after exchanging vows with his partner of 30 years on Thursday (12Sep13). The disco group's original cowboy wed Will Grega, a Wall Street software developer, in New York on the eve of his 61st birthday, wearing his trademark stetson and a Swarovski rhinestone-encrusted tuxedo, reports the New York Daily News. They celebrated the nuptials at a joint birthday party for Jones and actor pal Keith Collins at Manhattan hotspot The DL on Friday night (13Sep13). In the days leading up to the wedding, Jones told WENN, "Calling NYC home for four decades, and seeking marriage equality for nearly as long, we could not have chosen to be married in any other city in the world." Jones and Grega previously tied the knot at a Big Apple club in 2004, but the union was not legally binding as the same-sex marriage bill was only passed in the state in 2011.
