Renown opera countertenor and gay Atlanta dweller David Daniels, awash in the marriage equality movement sweeping the country, announced that he's getting hitched to his boyfriend next month with the help of a Supreme Court justice.
Just not in Georgia. Yet.
Daniels (photo left) is marrying Scott Walters, a conductor and singer, with the help of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg. He posted the good news to Facebook on Thursday.
The marriage announcement came five days after Daniels and Walters performed at the HRC Atlanta gala. Daniels performed "My Sweet Rose" from "Oscar," an opera about Oscar Wilde's trial and incarceration. Walters accompanied by reading a letter Wilde wrote. It didn't go well.
It's not the first gay Atlanta performance that didn't go well for Daniels. His Pride gig in 2009 suffered from scheduling problems.
Didn’t you perform at gay Pride this year?
I sang the national anthem with my partner on Pride weekend. I was excited to plug the opera to Pride people at Piedmont Park. They scheduled it so we started singing before the parade was over, though, so there were about 12 people there for us. Come on, really? Apart from that scheduling, it was great.
