    Russian Authorities Forced To Allow A Same-Sex Wedding

    "In the end, the disproving clerks had no choice but to issue a license to the young couple, because Alina, (once Dmitry Kozhukhov) who was born male, is recognized as a male in Russia. The ladies married immediately at the registry, punctuating their legal marriage with a long and happy kiss.

    I find there is a profound and satisfying irony in the fact the women used a law born from transphobia to defeat a law born of homophobia."

    Alina still identifies as strongly heterosexual, albeit androgynous and emulating women in every way due to his appreciation of female beauty.
