TR Knight Kicks Off National Gay Pride Month

Grey’s Anatomy actor T.R. Knight helps kick off National Gay Pride month with his 19-year-old boyfriend Mark Cornelsen on Wednesday night at West Hollywood’s The Abbey.

Dozens of same-sex couples took part in a symbolic “commitment to protect our rights” ceremony as a celebration of the California Supreme Court decision. Several couples committed with a “vow to vote no” and support of the campaign to defeat the November ballot measure that would take away the marriage rights granted by the California state Supreme Court.

West Hollywood mayor Jeffrey Prang presided over the ceremony, saying, “Your joined hands are outward and visible signs of an inward and spiritual bond, signifying to all your commitment to each other and your commitment in vowing to vote and protect your right to love.”

Couples at the event wore the Matthew Shepard Erase Hate pendant designed by Udi for Judy in memory of her son, who was the victim of a brutal anti-gay hate crime in rural Wyoming 10 years ago.

Earlier this week, T.R. expressed no interest in having a wedding of his own in the near future but said, “We’ve only known each other for six months, so I think it’s a little soon to consider marriage. [But] I don’t think you date anyone that you don’t see a future with.”
