Former Village People star Randy Jones is to wed his partner Will Grega in New York City on Friday.

The disco group’s original cowboy will tie the knot with the Wall Street software developer on his birthday as part of a three-day celebration, which will culminate with a wedding ceremony at City Hall in Manhattan.

The wedding reception will take place at the 13th annual Kings & Cowboys Birthday Celebration of Randy Jones and Keith Collins, at the Big Apple’s trendy rooftop club The DL.

Jones tells WENN, “Calling NYC home for four decades, and seeking marriage equality for nearly as long, we could not have chosen to be married in any other city in the world.”
