MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts and his new husband Patrick Abner are among those making gay glossy Out's Out 100 list.

Roberts, 39, and Abner, of Merck Pharmaceuticals' HIV/AIDS division, tied the knot in a Manhattan rooftop wedding after being together 12 years. The couple announced their engagement via Twitter on June 25, 2011, one day after gay marriage was legalized in New York.

The handsome couple holds hands while suited up in tuxes in their Out photo.

“I never imagined in a million years that I would be on a stage kissing my male partner, spouse – husband, Thomas is saying – in front of my father,” Abner said during the ceremony. “And to be able to do that and have not just my father but my whole family be proud of me? That's something special.”

The wedding also appeared to have an affect on Good Morning America weather anchor Sam Champion, who announced his own upcoming wedding to photographer Rubem Robierb at the party, marking the first time he has publicly addressed his sexual orientation.
