Time to change his relationship status!

Facebook Co-Founder Chris Hughes (above right) is engaged to his boyfriend, Sean Eldridge, political director for Freedom To Marry.

Eldridge announced their engagement at the New York City reception in Support of Freedom To Marry at the couple's SoHo loft.

Eldridge told their guests:

"This is very timely for Chris and I to have you here tonight to celebrate marriage and work on marriage. We got engaged two weeks ago, so there is a real sense of urgency."

They have yet to set a date, but the two are willing to wait until marriage is legal in New York. Eldridge added:

"As you know, we can't get married in New York, so there is more of an urgency to approve gay marriage, so we can get married here. We're going to get married in the next year or two for sure. We're hoping as soon as possible."

We hope so too.

Congratulations!

Majority Of College Kids Support Same-Sex Marriage

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitik

According to a recent study by the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA, 65% of college freshman support same-sex marriage, while only 59% of Americans 18-29 and 39% of the nation as a whole agree!

Evan Wolfson, director of advocacy group for same-sex marriage Freedom to Marry, says:

"Young people who know gay people, talk with them, and examine why marriage matters in the lives of real people move in support."

Hopefully some college freshmen in that 65% can grow up and take on roles which will help everyone in this country get equal rights!

You said it best, Vanessa Williams: the children ARE our future!!
