WEDDING BELLES

NYC City Council Chair Christine Quinn Weds Longtime Girlfriend

On Saturday, New York City Council Chair Christine Quinn married girlfriend Kim Catullo at the Highline Stages in the Meatpacking District. Quinn is the highest-ranking city official to take advantage of the state’s marriage-equality amendment since the measure passed last summer.

A front runner in the upcoming 2013 mayoral election, Quinn wore a sleeveless white Carolina Herrera gown. Catullo wore a custom-made Ralph Lauren suit. Tony winner Audra McDonald serenaded the women with George and Ira Gershwin’s “He Loves and She Loves”—with updated lyrics.

Some 275 guests were present, including Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Governor Andrew Cuomo. State Sen. Tom Duane, who is openly gay as well, came with his partner. “On the way here, I was already tearing up,” he admitted. “They’re so in love.”

Among those not in attendance? Catholic League dick cheese Bill Donohue, who shit on everyone’s parade by saying “the people who go know they are not witnessing a wedding. I will be at a bar watching the Preakness. The horses are a lot more fun—and it’s real.”

Ah yes, drinking to excess and gambling—good old-fashioned biblical values!

Meanwhile, if Quinn wins next year, she’ll be the Big Apple’s first out gay mayor, as well as it’s first woman.

      Quinn stated that her wedding was a personal – not a political – event. Then she invited two U.S. Senators, the Governor, the Mayor and other high-ranking politicians who aren’t her friends but from whom she is looking for an endorsement. And she used City employees to get the photos out to the press – before, during and after the event. Quinn’s wedding appears to have been a high profile stop on the campaign trail for her.
