R&B; Singer Marla Glen and girlfriend celebrate gay union

July 05, 2004

Marla Glen
HEILBRONN, Germany — Wearing her trademark tuxedo and top hat, American R&B; singer Marla Glen signed documents at the Heilbronn town hall Friday officially tying the knot on her gay relationship with German-born girlfriend Sabrina Conley.

Conley wore a white lace-trimmed bridal gown as the couple embraced and kissed on the town hall steps for television crews as champagne corks popped.

"Thanks to Germany's liberal gay marriage laws I can say I have finally fully arrived in this country," said the husky-voiced Glen, 43, who hails from Chicago.

She met Conley, 23, in Germany last year.

The wedding day agenda included a concert in Dortmund Friday evening. Under a 2001 law, gay couples can register with local authorities in Germany, giving them limited legal rights.

Having just completed a European tour, Glen is working on a new album for release early next year. She is best known for her 1990s hits The Cost of Freedom and Believer. – Sapa-DPA
