Glee's Jane Lynch engaged to girlfriend Lara Embry
Glee's cheerleading mistress Sue Sylvester has a wedding to plan for, as Jane Lynch lets drop to the New York Times that she is marrying her longtime girlfriend in real life. That would make for a very special episode, Fox.
The 49-year-old actress mentioned at last week's Golden Globes that she is engaged to Lara Embry, a psychologist whom The Advocate reminds us won a Justice Award from the National Center for Lesbian Rights last year for winning a same-sex custody battle that started in Sarasota with former girlfriend Kimberly Ryan.
Embry and Ryan had adopted each other's biological children, and Embry was fighting for rights to see her adopted daughter. The Florida Court of Appeals ruled a same-sex partner “must be given the same rights as any other adoptive parent in Florida.”
There are no other details on the wedding, which the Times just casually mentions. Not to be too cynical, but it'll be interesting to see if they do get married and Embry eventually pioneers same-sex divorce litigation.
