Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa presided over his first same-sex wedding on Monday when he married Oscar-winning producer Bruce Cohen and his partner, Gabriel Catone.
But all was not entirely peaceful. From the Los Angeles Times: "Moments after the champagne was poured, a woman who introduced herself as the "Angel of the Trinity" strode up to the podium to denounce the ceremony and call Villaraigosa an "adulterer" — a reference to his extramarital affair with a television reporter."
"It doesn’t spoil our day. It doesn’t take away our joy," Cohen told City News Service. "And it certainly doesn’t change the fact that we are legally married in the state of California."
Cohen is a longtime friend of Villaraigosa’s, and is co-hosting a fund-raiser for him this weekend.
