Alina Davis, a 23-year-old trans woman, and Allison Brooks, her 19-year-old partner, donned matching white floor-length bridal gowns and married at a civil registry office earlier this month.
As Davis is still legally regarded as male, the office had no choice but to hand them a marriage certificate.
The couple said officials chided them, and appeared to be violent.
‘She called us the shame of the family and said we need medical treatment … I was afraid my pussycat [an affectionate pet name in Russian] would beat the fuck out of her,’ Davis said on her VK page.
But the couple were allowed to sign the papers, meaning a gay couple in Russia are legally recognized as married – even if it’s through a loophole.
‘This is an important precedent for Russia,’ Davis said.
Russia banned same-sex marriage and outlawed ‘gay propaganda’ in 2013.
holy jesus look at these two warrior princesses
they are my heroes
YOU GO GIRLS
“Oh, you don’t wanna recognize my gender? Okay then lol guess you have to recognize my marriage”
that is amazing
Okay but other reports state that Alina identifies as androgyne but feels more comfortable as a woman, it definitely is trans excellence but the label she uses is not reported correctly here.
Thanks for the info! (This means it’s not only trans excellence but also NONBINARY EXCELLENCE YEAH!)
❤ They are both so fuckin AWESOME ❤
So proud of these awesome people right here, celebrating their love and also giving a massive “Fuck you” to the bigoted collection of thugs and criminals that make up the “Government” of Russia
This is some next level Greek mythology loophole heroics right here and I am ecstatic.
I approve of using bigots own stupidity against them 😀
Loopholes FTW, Loki would be proud!
Also is anyone else shit scared for them?
This is what I’ve been hoping to see. More of this.
