1. Sandra Bernhard officiated a gay wedding last Wednesday.
Actress, comedienne, and Universal Life minister Sandra Bernhard officiated the wedding between Manhattan natives Georgi Dimitrov Balinov and Bradford Shane Shellhammer. “It all began as all good gay-boy relationships do,” Bernhard said as she introduced the couple, “at Equinox on Greenwich Avenue!” According to The New York Times, Balinov (right), 30, is a vice president for investment banking at Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Shellhammer, 36, is a founder and the chief design officer of the social shopping site, Fab.com. Couple made in gay heaven? Yes. The ceremony, which had a staged mask ball theme, took place with relatives and friends at New York’s Russian Tea Room.
3. Sandra also tweeted this after the wedding:

6. As this shaky video proves, this wedding was a party for the ages:
- President Trump signed executive orders today to advance the Keystone XL and Dakota Access oil pipelines, prompting praise from pro-Trump unions.
- Mark Zuckerberg denied rumors that he might run for president, telling BuzzFeed News, "I'm focused on building our community at Facebook."
- Press Secretary Sean Spicer at today's White House briefing defended Trump's claim that millions of people voted illegally—but he cited a debunked study.
- And the 2017 Oscar nominations for Best Picture are "La La Land," "Moonlight," "Arrival," "Hidden Figures," "Hacksaw Ridge," "Manchester by the Sea," "Lion," "Fences," and "Hell or High Water" 🎥 🎬
