OK, I was trying for a sensational, click-bait headline because one of the grooms, Nick Denton, owns Gawker, among other titles, like Jezebel and Gizmodo. Fail. So, new media baron Nick Denton, 47, and actor Derrence Washington, 31, got married in grand style and it was, by all accounts sensational! – but not in a scandalous way. The American Museum of Natural History was the setting and the Hayden Planetarium played a 40-minute trip through the stars for al of their guests. (Who does that? Nick & Derrence, it seems.) Denton and Washington have been dating since 2011. (…so, by my math, they met when Derrence was in his late 20s and Nick in his mid-40s. This wedding COULD be scandalous after all. Older/ younger! Mixed race! Gay! Nope, sorry. In New York City, that’s a Tuesday.) Well, during the ceremony, Mr, Denton, senior, who had flown in from his native Yorkshire, England, spoke of his pride at being at his “gay son’s” wedding. And in the words of the man officiating the nuptials, Benjamin Seaman (also the couple’s therapist) from that moment on, no-one there would be able to say they were a “GWV” a “gay wedding virgin” any longer. No scandal here. Everybody say LOVE!
