Rufus Wainwright Plans His Wedding in Montauk

Wainwright and Weisbrodt. (Patrick McMullan)

The summer of same-sex weddings! Couples that have used the year since marriage equality was legalized in New York to pick the perfect caterer have included Christine Quinn and fiancée, Thomas Roberts and fiancé–and now pop singer Rufus Wainwright and his love, theater producer Jorn Weisbrodt. The Post reports that the ceremony will include Carrie Fisher, “best known for playing Princess Leia in the original ‘Star Wars’ trilogy” (no love for When Harry Met Sally?) as well as Yoko Ono. The wedding will take place in Montauk. Mr. Weisbrodt changed the mind of the prominent “Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk” chanteur: New York noticed, in 2010, that Mr. Wainwright had said, “I… feel a strong tie to the traditional bohemian concept of being a homosexual, i.e., the last thing we want is to be like everybody else.”

Since meeting Jorn all that changed,” Mr. Wainwright said later.
