Alan Cumming Celebrates Fifth Anniversary by Saying 'I Do'

Out actor Alan Cumming married his longtime partner, Grant Shaffer, in New York City's Soho Grand Hotel over the weekend.  After dating for two years, the couple entered a civil partnership in London.  On their fifth anniversary, they celebrated by getting married.

At the time of their civil union, Cumming said: "As residents of America, we would have loved to marry there, but we hope that soon the civil rights that we have been afforded in the U.K. will be available to all gay Americans, and we look forward to celebrating not only our marriage, but the end of prejudice."  When New York became the sixth state to legalize marriage for same-sex couples last June, the two were finally able to marry in their place of residency.

The recipient of GLAAD's Vito Russo Award announced his marriage by tweeting, "On the 5th anniversary of our wedding in London grant and I tied the knot again in NYC!!!" and later by posting the picture seen above with the caption "Just married..."

Cumming currently stars in CBS' hit show The Good Wife, and his husband is as an illustrator.  GLAAD extends its warmest congratulations to the couple on their marriage.
