Rufus Wainwright wants to marry his partner

"Rufus Wainwright is supporting the fight to legalize the freedom to marry in the U.S. - because he'd love to marry his long-term German partner Jorn Weisbrodt.
"The singer has credited German theatre producer Jorn with inspiring him to speak out for gay rights, insisting he never wanted to settle down before meeting his partner.
"However, Wainwright is frustrated by laws that keep the couple from sealing their union.
"He says, 'I have been with Jorn for five years and he's the light of my life. He's my inspiration, support and he's good in the sack, too! But I am very aware of living in the U.S., of the conundrum that you can't marry your gay partner and give him citizenship. He has to apply for a green card and he may or may not get accepted, which is annoying when you're in a committed relationship. If we were straight, we could get married and he'd get his American passport and it would make a lot of sense.' "
