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.”

Rice replaces ice in India bucket challenge

An Indian school boy eats a midday meal provided free at a government school in Hyderabad, India, Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013. India has offered free midday school meals since the 1960s in an effort to persuade poor parents to send their children to school, a program that reaches some 120 million children. The country now plans to subsidize wheat, rice and cereals for some 800 million people under a $20 billion scheme to cut malnutrition and ease poverty.

The famous "ice bucket" challenge is inspiring thousands of Indians to follow suit, but with a twist - they are replacing ice with rice to help the country's hungry people.
