Jörn Weisbrodt and Rufus Wainwright Call For Equality for Lesbian and Gay Binational Couples
German-born Jörn Weisbrodt and American singer song-writer, Rufus Wainwright, speak out for the right of all lesbian and gay binational couples to live together in U.S.
Rufus and Jörn were engaged in late 2010 and married in New York State on August 23, 2012.
“When we married in New York State, we made a vow to be together and support each other for the rest of our lives.
In 50 years we will look back at this day as we look back at the 1967 legalization of inter-racial marriages in U.S.: with disbelief that it took this long to recognize equality.
Our vow should be protected by the federal government allowing binational couples like us a path to a green card.”
