The wedding of TV exec Paris Barclay and his longtime partner Christopher Mason last week in Los Angeles doubled as a fundraiser for the presidential campaign of Sen. Barack Obama, as well as a benefit for Equality California, which fights an anti-same-sex initiative on the November ballot. In lieu of gifts, wedding guests made financial contributions, with several thousand dollars going toward the production of TV spots supporting Obama’s campaign. “Whatever else they need, I’m there,” Barclay said.
