Former talk show host Rosie O'Donnell married her longtime girlfriend today, taking what she called a proud stand for gay civil rights in the city where more than 3,300 other same-sex couples have tied the knot since Feb. 12. Hundreds of spectators came to witness the city's first celebrity same-sex wedding and greeted the newlyweds with thuderous applause.

"I want to thank the city of San Francisco for this amazing stance the mayor has taken for all the people here, not just us but all the thousands and thousands of loving, law-abiding couples," O'Donnell said, after she and Kelli Carpenter emerged from their brief ceremony inside Mayor Gavin Newsom's office.

As the San Francisco's Gay Men's Chorus serenaded the couple with a few bars of "Going to the Chapel," O'Donnell smiled and said, "We really did. We got married."

O'Donnell's mixture of shock and joy is evident on many of the just wed faces emerging from the proceedings, as documented before a national audience in the past several days. The legitimacy of all proceedings, of course, have been seriously questioned by Governor Schwarzenegger and President Bush alike.

The added clout and financial backing of a celebrity testing the gay matrimony waters before a nationally televised audience will certainly add fuel if not credibility to the gay right's movement.

She said she was inspired to come to San Francisco and marry by the "vile, vicious and hateful comments" of the sitting President.

I was wondering how long it was going to take her to capitalise on this.
Im not against gay marriage. I could care less. I just #ing hate Rosie O'Donnel.
This doesnt surprise me at all. I should have started a thread about this weeks ago in the 'predictions' forum

congrats to her, but i dont think we have seen the last of this yet.
I believe she will be used as an example by Bush, and or Awnold here in Ca.
I dont look at it as a ghey thing, i look at is as an excersise of civil rights and in my opinion it was aimed directly at the bush administration.
Basically what im trying to say is this could help us citizens out in the longrun.
