Someone’s due for a status change: Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes married his boyfriend Sean Eldridge on Saturday at their home in Garrison, New York. High-profile guests included FB guru Mark Zuckerberg, Napster founder Sean Parker, Oprah BFF Gayle King, Angels in America playwright Tony Kushner, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Newark Mayor Cory Booker.
Hughes, 28, has moved on from the ubiquitous social-media site, using his expertise and substantial wealth to work for President Obama’s campaign, start a social network for nonprofits and purchase The New Republic. Eldridge, 25, runs an investment company and founded the finance-reform group Protect Our Democracy,
“[Sean] was very intelligent and charismatic,” recalls Hughes of their meeting seven years ago, when he was a senior at Harvard. “He was very kind and politically engaged, and he cared about the world around us. All of that was very attractive to me.”
