News: Michael Lucas to Wed Longtime Partner

Porn superstar Michael Lucas has announced his upcoming marriage to longtime love Richard Winger. A private ceremony will be held in West Hollywood and performed by Councilmember John Duran. Lucas is president and CEO of New York-based porn production company Lucas Entertainment, and Winger is an international businessman and President Emeritus of New York City’s LGBT Center. The couple met eight years ago at a holiday party. Their wedding will also serve as a fund-raiser for Equality California, a leading statewide lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights and advocacy organization.

“I’m very excited about the upcoming ceremony, and I’m proud to be having it in a state that accepts our relationship,” Lucas says. “This is not only a declaration of our love but as a way to show that gay people can marry just like heterosexual couples. While it’s difficult to believe these rights may be swept away by such ignorance, it’s moments such as this when we need to come together and fight for a cause.” Following their nuptials in California, Lucas and Winger plan to commemorate the ceremony with a gathering in New York City in November.
