Gay Boxer Orlando 'Fenomeno' Cruz Marries Partner in NYC


Gay boxer Orlando 'Fenomeno' Cruz married his partner José Manuel Colón in NYC's Central Park on Saturday, reports the Washington Blade:

New York City Councilmember Melissa Mark-Viverito, who is among the frontrunners to succeed outgoing New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn in the position, officiated the ceremony. Pedro Julio Serrano of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and Shirley Casiano were witnesses.

“Giving thanks to my heavenly father for one more day of life and with [my] husband José Manuel in it,” Cruz wrote in Spanish on his Facebook page on Sunday.

  6. I give Orlando Cruz a lot of credit for coming out in the macho boxing world - And he is no c-grade player. This guy is a world class boxer.
