Author David Sedaris wishes gay marriage would be legal everywhere but that gay people would not marry.

The 56-year-old openly gay Sedaris, who is promoting his latest collection of humorous essays, Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, made his comments during a recent appearance on George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight.

“See, I wish that gay marriage would be legal everywhere, but that no gay people would act on it, because, look, nobody wants to go to anybody's wedding,” Sedaris said. “Nobody wants to get on a plane, go halfway across the country, and wear clothes that they don't feel comfortable in, and choose between the beef and the chicken, and sit in a loud room where a horrible band is playing way too loud, and they're getting their picture taken ... nobody wants that.” (The video is embedded on this page.

Sedaris has previously said that he and partner Hugh Hamrick are not the marrying type.
