Orlando Cruz Marries Boyfriend in New York City

The Puerto Rican boxer Orlando Cruz married his boyfriend José Manuel Colón in New York's Central Park, with NYC Councilmember Melissa Mark-Viverito officiating the ceremony.

Cruz became the first openly gay professional boxer when he came out as "a proud gay man" last year, while he still was active.

Last August, he proposed wed to his boyfriend via a publicly posted Facebook video. José Manuel accepted immediately on same Facebook.

Congrats to the newlyweds!.

Cruz wore rainbow briefs during 
a high-visibility fight last month 
in order to show support for LGBT rights.
