Conan O'Brien Gay WeddingConan O'Brien's return to New York will be quite a memorable trip. According to Vulture, O'Brien will celebrate the one-year anniversary of his TBS series, 'Conan,' by officiating a gay wedding as part of his show.

O'Brien isn't just marrying two random men, he'll be conducting the ceremony of a longtime staff member and his partner.

Gay marriage became legal in New York in July.

O'Brien may be making history for performing a gay marriage, but this isn't the first time a wedding has been part of a late-night talk show. Musician Tiny Tim married Miss Vicki on Johnny Carson's 'The Tonight Show' back in 1969.

'Conan' begins broadcasting from New York on Mon., Oct. 31 at 11PM ET on TBS. His shows will be taped at the Beacon Theater.

Tell us: Will you tune in to see Conan O'Brien perform a gay wedding?

Im so glad our country allows choices. I know a show i wont be watching. As for Conan, he is doing it for his failing ratings. His career is in the toileet and this episode will push the handle.

How and why do they have to keep shoving this gay "CRAP" down our throats?,,, why couldnt it be like the old days,, no one was in the closet, they were indescrete about it,,, they just didnt keep trying to put it on every tv show and so on. no body out here wants to see to males or females kissing,,, As for the sex,, How in the hell can two men have sex? Conan just makes me sick now, and will never watch his show!.....

You have it wrong. People were in the closet. They were tired of being there. Well now you know how the gay people feel always getting the straight crap down our throat. The same way straight tv gets shoved at us all the time. Get over yourself. You are aloud to love who you want so quit your jugdement. I hope you don't have kids to pass on your narrow hateful view. You think people want to be gay. Sorry not a choice. Just like being straight is not a choice.
