Singer Rufus Wainwright has joined the fight to legalise same-sex marriage in the US.
According WENN, Wainwright hopes to marry longtime partner, German theatre producer Jorn Weisbrodt, and is speaking out for gay rights.
"I have been with Jorn for five years and he's the light of my life. He's my inspiration, support and he's good in the sack, too!" Wainwright said.
The songwriter also explained that he is frustrated by the laws that bar homosexual unions.
"But I am very aware of living in the US, of the conundrum that you can't marry your gay partner and give him citizenship," he added.
Wainwright continued: "I wasn't a huge gay marriage supporter before I met Jorn… But since meeting Jorn that all changed."
