International Love! Gay and Lesbian Couple Shoot Wedding Photos on Beijing Street
These two couples braved the Chinese public opinion on Valentine’s Day 2009 in order to shoot their wedding photos and to promote awareness and acceptance within the traditionally conservative society. They received mixed reactions, with some questioning why there was a bride and a bridesmaid but no groom. Most supporters of the event commented the the couple were very brave and were encouraged by their open display.
The photos they took are just gorgeous though! We hope they are still quite happy together and have been able to live peacefully two years on.
