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.”

    Damn… Clooney used to get harassed about his ex-hooker’s age, at least she was able to drink. T.R. drove right up to the high school to pick this one out. Sheesh, if he was a straight 34 year old he’d be catching hell for dating someone so young. Chile can’t buy a drink yet.

    National gay pride month? When was that created? Also, can’t T.R find someone in his own age bracket. That guy may be 19, but he is still a kid

    The thing I don’t understand is that before that whole incidient he said he wanted to be private about it, and not really make a big deal out of it. Now he is doing everything and just being so outspoken about it. I have absolutely nothing against him or gay people because my best friend is. I’m just kind of lost on him.

    It just disgusts me that he would go for someone so young… Its kinda like ellen and portia, milo and hayden and so many other celebrities. Find someone who wasnt born when you were a teenager.

    What is wrong with our country? Since when did this kind of behavior become the norm, let alone become something we dedicate a whole month celebration too. You deserve what ever is comming.

    19 yr old boyfriend! That is so wrong. At 34 you have no business dating a 19yr old whether you are gay or straight.

    emma lee Says:

    Ok, here I go again. NINETEEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They have been dating for 6 months! Was he 18 when they started dating? I would be less upset if he was over 21. Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green have a big age difference but she is not 19! He should be in college, doing stupid college guy things!

    Gay Rights Are Civil Rights.

    TiredofthisCrap Says:

    I don’t condone discrimination because of one sexual preference, but Gay Rights and Civil Rights are not one in the same.

    Everyone knows you are black, you can’t downplay that, but people are unaware of your sexuality unless you make some form of announcement.

    Two different group of people with two very different set of problems.

    April Says:

    civil rights……..whatever! You have the right to DO wahever you want in your personal life as long as it is not harming someone else. But trying to pretend like being gay is a right is stupid. It is a choice and the rest of us should not have to protect your right to be gay! If you are Black, White, Mexican, Asian, man, woman, elderly, child, etc. you have a right to be protected and stand up for your civil rights. But to be gay? Come on! You want to choose that lifestyle fine, but don’t make the rest of us have to pretend like what you choose is ok.

    April, you’re a fcking idiot. You don’t choose to be gay. Why would you chose to be made fun and hated on all the fcking time? You sound like an immature know-it-all. You’re born gay. Go read a book.
