As California ushered in historic gay marriage changes Tuesday, Access Hollywood caught up with T. R. Knight and his boyfriend Mark Cornelsen at the Los Angeles premiere of “Get Smart.”

“It’s a wonderful day!” T.R. told Access regarding the start of gay marriage ceremonies throughout the state. “It’s just, it’s fair. And anytime that happens and anytime equality is present, it’s a marvelous thing, and it’s about time.”

Not only is gay marriage a cause for celebration within the LGBT community, but also a proud moment for the whole nation, according to T.R.

”[Much of] our country’s history is full of times of just horrible inequality. And anytime they right it, it’s correct,” the “Grey’s Anatomy” actor added.

As for T.R. and boyfriend Mark Cornelsen heading down the aisle? The couple said they are taking their time.

“We’ve only been dating for about six months, so it’s a little soon for that, " T.R. told Access.

When Access’ Shaun Robinson pressed, asking how the date could be moved up, Mark responded with, “We’ll see, we’ll see.”

“Thank God we have the pressure,” T.R. said of the press continuing to ask about his marriage plans. “I’m happy for the pressure!”

Though the happy couple won’t we walking down the aisle in the immediate future, T.R. said they already have one invite to a celeb gay wedding.

“We’re going to Ellen and [Portia’s] wedding. I’m really excited about it,” T.R. told Access. “We got a little Save the Date card. They’re such wonderful people! I’m honored we got invited.”

But T.R. and Mark still need to find a wedding gift for the couple.

“We need to check out that bridal registry,” Mark said.
