Back in 2015, in a long-coveted triumph for the gay rights movement, the supreme court ruled by a 5-to-4 vote, thus guaranteeing a right to same-sex marriage. The decision was a result of long-withstanding activism and was embraced by Americans with open arms. Among the many people who had publicly celebrated the judgment, Moton was seen lauding it on social media.
The celebrated reporter not only showed his happiness at the time on social media but also attended one of the first marriages of a lesbian couple in New Jersey, further commemorating the occasion.
From attending the first same-sex marriage to getting married to his partner in 2020, he has come a long way.
He Got Married To His Boyfriend In 2020
Moton and his boyfriend, Brandon Jones, decided to get married at the beginning of 2020 and honored the legalization decision in their own way.
The famous reporter admitted that his pre-pandemic wedding helped him keep moving forward and put things in perspective. Jones is the director of Health Center Operations & HR Training at the National Association of Community Health Centers.
Moreover, Kenneth posted a picture with his husband from his wedding day as well as a video of their reception party on social media, both of which garnered many compliments from fans and colleagues.
The happy couple is very much in love, as can be seen in Moton's social media posts. Although Jones' social media account is private, his spouse's Instagram posts have more than enough love for both of them. For instance, he posted about celebrating one month of marriage with his husband.
The newlyweds may start a family of their own soon as Moton loves children and wants to fulfill his & his mother's dream.
