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.”

  • TiredofthisCrap

    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.

  • Moviemadness

    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

  • littlemissobsessive

    damn. mark is hot!!!

  • t

    good for him

  • abby

    That picture looks like he’s holding him hostage lol

  • Janie

    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.

  • hmm…

    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.

  • AIZA

    OMG!!!! HE IS A GAY?????????????????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OH :(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(

  • rc

    Wow, I had no idea his boyfriend was so much younger. Kinda weird.

  • Mike

    love him! but only on grey’s anatomy!!!! lol jk go TR!

  • blackfriday1978

    Thank you for some of your comments, I was just wondering what the heck 19?! This is just wrong and com’on – don’t take advantage of the minors… that’s gross…

  • omg

    eeeeeewwwwww gay and a pedophile

  • April

    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.

  • emma lee

    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

    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!

  • ej

    OMG THEY ARE SO HOT!!!!

    GO THEM HA

  • Gay Rights

    Gay Rights Are Civil Rights.

  • TiredofthisCrap

    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

    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.

  • http://lorlopeck angela

    Disgusting.

  • Jane

    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.

  • orange clockwork

    ^ #18- Megan Fox was 18 when her and Brian Austin Green began dating so it is the same, and now her and Brian are engaged =)

  • just me

    Anyone who thinks being gay is a choice is ignorant and uninformed!! Get an education and do some research before you make stupid statements. I am noytgay myself but my brother is and it’s been obvious since he was a very young boy. There is nothing wrong with it and I’m glad it is finally becoming legal for two loving, commited people to have all the rights straight people have. It’s about damn time!!!

  • Roadwork

    Screw you stupid fossil homophobes, your old news, since when is nineteen underage, pedophile, give me a break, this blog is read buy a bunch of country bumpkins. Its Ironic you say this is what wrongwith the country but you are whats wrong with the country you disgusting homophobic bigots and pricks, your a bunch of inhumane assholes.

  • http://ew vin deez

    Ohmygod Ewwwww! The kid’s just 19! Sick pedo find someone your own age instead of preying on kids! If ur 30+ and date under 23 ur a pedo!
    You don’t see me gettin’ wit 4 year olds.

  • TiredofthisCrap

    Actually @ Roadwork country bumpkins marry people 14 on up, it would be safe to assume that country bumpkins would have no issues with their age difference.

    It is creepy with T.R. Knight, as well as Milo Vehemillo, Woody Allen, Brian Austin Green and R Kelly, it has nothing to to with his homosexuality, just f*cking creepy and grown @ss men chatting up teenagers!!!! What do they talk about, prom, Barbie dolls, college admission, what they are going to be when they grow up…just saying the sh*t is real creepy.

  • Angie

    I think they make a cute a couple, but I didn’t know his bf was so freaking young!

  • CA

    Milo and TR need to leave the teens alone honey. Whatev’s, they probably won’t last.

    Hey April, when did you have the sit-down conversation with yourself and decide to be straight?

    You share a common misconception that too many people in this world hold. I find it difficult to think that 10% of our adult population–the percentage reported in the last U.S. census of those who identify themselves as gay– made the conscious decision to be ostracized from the other 90% of the country just because. Logic would lead most to believe that we no more choose to be discriminated against as women or ethnic minorities as a gay person would choose to be a minority based on their sexuality.

    Can everyone please just drop the age difference?? It doesn’t matter how old they are. The point is that they love each other; that should be enough for everyone! God, people always have to criticize everything…

  • emilie
