Mark Cornelsen: T.R. Knight's New Boyfriend

Grey’s Anatomy star T.R. Knight and boyfriend Mark Cornelsen hold hands during the 2008 Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Party held at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood on Sunday.

Cornelsen was the 2007 Matthew Shepard Point Scholar. Watch the video below of Mark talking about how his story affected his generation or read his story below!

Mark grew up in a small town close to the Canadian border called Ferndale, Washington. Brought up in an extremely conservative, religious household, Mark received a very negative reception when he came out. His family’s religious views left absolutely no room for understanding or acceptance; there would be no compromise. Mark was ostracized from their lives, and he was left to lead a life of independence at the age of sixteen.

Donating back to his community and excelling academically were always top priorities while in high school. Mark graduated from high school a year early by attending college courses, and he is currently working multiple jobs to help fund his education. He is involved with the ONE campaign to provide AIDS and poverty education globally and is establishing a local chapter. He is eager to become more involved with GLSEN and many GLBT organizations within the Bay Area in the coming months.

Mark is attending San Francisco State University in the fall of 2007 where he will earn a degree in Resort/Commercial Recreation Management with a minor in International Business. He aspires to be the director of an international luxury resort.”

    Hmm. Mark is cute. He looks quite a bit younger than T.R. to me though.. like 10 years older. He looks like hes in his early 20s. lol. Not that it matters.

    good for them, they have nothing to be ashamed of!

    As for the ones who said it wasn’t “normal”…there is no such thing as normal. The normalcy of the world is not being normal.

    Wake up and learn some tolerance.

    I think it’s terrible not to accept your childs sexuality. Put your GD so called Christian beliefs first instead of unconditional love for your child. It’s a huge loss to the parents who are too stupid to realize this. People should not have children if they can’t accept the possibility that their child may be a homosexual.

    Good on Mark for making something of his life, and good for Mark and TR for finding one another. I wish them all the happiness in this world.

    Lenny I agree, ut’s weird not matter what people say. Or try to convince us.

    To Carol in Glendale:
    The article never said the family was “Christian” so let’s not put labels just because you obviously have issues against Christianity. I believe you’re the one spreading the hate here.

  24. 24
    Carol in Glendale Says:

    Ok fine tom c but it did refer to religious beliefs. I’m not spreading any kind of hate. I do think it’s hypocritical to have so-called religious beliefs and on the other hand, not unconditionally accept and love your child.
    BTW, I do believe in God. Just not so sure the Bible can be taken as 100% fact since it’s been interpreted by man over the years.

    His parents are losers in my opinion. YMMV.
