No one can stop love from happening. It’s just a natural reflex that can happen any given time. Not even Cupid or the courts can halt two people from falling in love. Beth Ditto and her partner Kristin Ogata showed to the world how true this statement is by tying the knot in Hawaii via a wedding ceremony, that was unofficial.
It was truly incredible, romantic occasion for everyone involved. Love was enough to keep them together apparently. However, after 17 months, they decided to go to Oregon to formally acknowledge their union thanks to the same-sex laws in the state.
Jason Landau & Cheyenne Jackson
Cheyenne Jackson, an actor from the series American Horror Story, has no horror stories to tell when it comes to his relationship with entrepreneur and fellow actor Jason Landau. It was 2013 when the two publicly announced that they were dating. A year later, they tied the knot and are now living happily as a family with their twins.
Jackson is serious about being a dedicated dad. He took six months off from work just to be a full-time stay-at-home father for the twins. Since then, the family has been living happily every after, together – and hopefully for life.
Brad Altman & George Takei
George Takei, despite being already 80 years old – and despite no longer involved in the Star Trek franchise – is still best remembered as his character Hikaru Sulu. Plus there is no stopping his more than 10 million followers from continually growing.
It was only in 2008 when he publicly announced his sexuality by claiming he was in a relationship with actor and writer Brad Altman. Plus, little did anyone know that the two have been together for 18 years. The couple appeared in The Newlywed Game TV show a year later where they won $10,000 for their chosen charity, the Japanese American National Museum.
Mark Bradshaw & Ben Whishaw
Ben Whishaw is an English actor who prefers privacy in his life. Though this may be ironic considering that he is an actor, and an incredibly talented actor, at that, it seems impossible to keep his wish fulfilled specially when he publicly announced a detail about the relationship he was in.
It was 2012 when Ben Whishaw couldn’t help himself but exclaim that he and Mark Bradshaw, a composer from Australia, are in a relationship. Plus, it was not just a relationship, the two were in a civil partnership. And they are still going strong until this very day.
Brian Hargrove & David Hyde Pierce
He might be one of the most iconic brothers in the history of TV. David Hyde Pierce was Dr. Miles Crane in the long-running sitcom Frasier. It was three years after Frasier ended that Pierce publicly announced he was gay. His publicist later confirmed that he was in a relationship with Brian Hargrove – a director, producer and television writer.
Pierce publicly acknowledged Hargrove when he accepted his Tony Award for the musical Curtains. The two have been together for 24 years but only married in 2008 – days prior to the adoption of Proposition 8 (a law that banned same-sex marriage).
