Rufus Wainwright Changes His Tune On Gay Marriage

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayRufus WainwrightLGBT


The man who never wanted to settle down is now joining to struggle to marry his partner of 5 years Jorn WeisBrodt!

Musician Rufus Wainwright explains his new stance on gay marriage:

"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. I wasn't a huge gay marriage supporter before I met Jorn because I love the whole old-school promiscuous Oscar Wilde freak show of what 'being gay' once was. But since meeting Jorn that all changed."


Equality for all!

    WTF is he talking about? He's Canadian, he can come up here and get married any time he wants.

  2. 2

    LoL…eww, those are two big ole bottoms, if I ever saw any. Wonder how that fun in the sack works out for these two.

  3. 3

    He's totally right!!
    I was able to come and stay in USA because I got married to an American citizen, but it's so screwed up that I owe this right to the fact that I'm straight. Had I been gay, I wouldn't be so fortunate.

    I always found Wainwright to be a pretentious asshole. I'm not sure where he learned that being gay equaled a "promiscuous Oscar Wilde freak show." I'm sure it is for some people (gay and straight) but not for all.

    Rufus is not Canadian, his mother Kate McGarrigle was. He is an American citizen. All I can suggest is that he comes to live in Canada with his lover and ask for Canadian citizenship to honour his mother who died recently. In Canada no problem for gays wanting to tie the knot. What a perfect country to live in, Canada, and not only for gays. The best country in the world.

    @Babouchka: Rufus is both canadian and american. I'm not sure where he's born, but his father is american and mother canadian. Anyways, he should come back to Montreal and get married to his boyfriend

    That Jorn sure is a lucky guy. Landing that American sex fantasy Rufus. And I'm so glad Rufus has given up being poked in bars and dark alleys because he never really was a freak show.

    Rufus is confused - he is supposed to marry me.

    glad to see someone in the lime shine some attention to this obvious difference. i hear people opposed to gay marriage justify that gays should get hitched with civil unions BUT a civil union won't allow a citizen pass his citizenship to a loved one the way a marriage does. it's one of the biggest differences i see.

    he chnages his tune when it benefits him…doesn't sound selfish at all!!!!

  11. 11

    Nice Fur collar there Rufus!!!

    I hate people who are only concerned with issues when it affects them. Nice shot at empathy, rufus. you tool.

  14. 14

    What an dickhead!
    He didn't give a rat's ass when it didn't affect him or his relationship.
    Selfish loser!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. 15

    That's great and we're all happy for them, but did he really have to say "good in the sack"? If a man said that publically about a woman, or a woman about a man, it would be unacceptably rude and tacky, and it's rude and tacky here.

  16. 16

    he's marrying one of borat's brothers?

  17. 17

    You can't get citizenship by marrying even if you're straight! That law changed about 7 years ago, what an ass.

  18. 18

    How classless and trashy is it to put in your statement "he's good in the sack, too!"- Sadly, this is one reason we gays don't have our rights, because they think all we about is sex and here comes pig bottom Rufus to just confirm even more in their minds- can you imagine any respectable person putting something like that in a statement?!? He's garbage!

  19. 19

    i mistakenly met him off GAY.COM 4 years ago in nyc….bad teeth and really queeny!

    I love to see posts about Rufus. I love him!

    That's good news.
    Please Perez let everybody know about the UAFA that would allow LGBT binational couples to stay together. So many couples are torn aprt by the actual immigration laws.
    Contact your congress representative and tell him to cosponsor it!!

    Re: eldora – First thing I thought. The next was about him holding dual Canadian/American citizenship so I guess like most, he's looking for attention or something.

  24. 24

    He is a real sweetheart in person, and I'm glad he has changed his mind.

  25. 25

    "…and he's good in the sack, too!" TMMFI Ughhhh!!! Imagine them buttfucking each other. *shudders*

  26. 26

    Rufus is Canadian-AMERICAN, he has dual citizenship because his father is AMERICAN. He has lived in NEW YORK since he was in high school, most of his life actually. So if he wants to get married it has to be here, in the USA.

    People change…what a concept. May the laws change so all can marry and the conservative idiots will see that no one is really standing in line to marry their dog or a goat like they always say when it comes to talking about gay marriage…grrrrr I hate that! Of course, we know the media will find the one person in the world who does want to marry an animal companion so they can confirm their twisted ideas about the world….grrrr hate that too!
