NEW YORK — Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter and gay rights activist Melissa Etheridge has gotten married.

People magazine says the 53-year-old Etheridge married partner Linda Wallem at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California, on Saturday.

Etheridge and the 53-year-old Wallem, a co-creator of the television series “Nurse Jackie,” began dating in 2010. They announced their engagement following the Supreme Court’s decision on gay rights.

Besides the singer’s four children, the magazine says several celebrities attended the ceremony, including Chelsea Handler, Rosie O’Donnell, Whitney Cummings, Peter Facinelli and recording artist Sia.

Etheridge also has a new solo album scheduled for release in September.
