Sean Hayes Marries Partner Of Eight Years In Secret Ceremony

5th Annual L.A. Loves Alex's Lemonade Annual Fundraiser

Eight years after dating, Sean Hayes and his partner, music composer Scott Icenogle, have secretly wed.

Hayes stirred the pot when he appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show wearing a silver band at the end of October.

The former Will & Grace star confirmed his marriage on Facebook with a photo of the couple and a caption that read: “Here’s a #TBT photo of Scotty and me getting married last week. Took us 8 years but we did it!”

Hayes officially came out a decade after landing his iconic role as gay character Jack McFarland during an interview with the Los Angeles Times.

“I was so young,” Hayes said four years ago when he publicly came out. “It made me go back in the closet [with the media] because I was so overwhelmed at 26 or 27. I didn’t want the responsibility; I didn’t know how to handle the responsibility of speaking for the gay community. I always felt like I owned them a huge apology for coming out too late. Some people in the gay community were very upset with me for not coming out on their terms. They don’t stop to think about what’s going on in somebody’s personal life, and the struggles that they’re having. It was all very scary. We got death threats. It was a really rough time for me, but I was also having the time of my life.”

Hayes and Icenogle had a small, private ceremony at their home in Los Angeles.

by The Next Family March 25, 2016

With the passage of marriage equality last year, laws have been quickly changing across the United States. LGBT couples with or without children weren’t just given the right of marriage, they were provided new protections and benefits within their families.

Representation of Modern Families in Kid-Friendly Entertainment

by The Next Family March 24, 2016 1 Comment


By Alex Temblador

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.

The same can be said of other...
