Rufus Not Against Gay Marriage For You, Just Him

“Singer Rufus Wainwright came under fire from gay rights advocates for quotes in [The NY Press] in which the star stated he was “not a huge supporter of gay marriage”.Wainwright states he didn’t mean to make a stand against gay marriage insisting he meant he wouldn’t want to take legally binding vows himself. He says, “Recently, a quote from an interview was taken out of context and as these things go, it has appeared on many internet sites. So, to set the record straight (or shall we say gay?), I am not nor have I ever been opposed to anyone’s right to marry – straight or gay.”I have voiced my strong opposition to Prop 8 on many occasions and will continue to do so until that referendum is reversed…I myself just don’t want to (marry) at the moment and feel a strong tie to the traditional bohemian concept of being a homosexual, ie: the last thing we want is to be like everybody else. But who knows, a girl likes options. Maybe someday I will want to marry!”[WENN]
