(from -gblt India) - First ever public gay wedding in Nepal
Two homosexual males have dared to challenge the culture, tradition, family values and Constitution of Nepal for the sake of their love. Anil Mahaju and Diya Kashyap (names changed) will "tie their knot" on Saturday, 26th August 2006, in Kathmandu, Nepal.
Anil and Diya have been in a relationship for about a year and have now decided to live for each other. They will wed in a semi-traditional way, appearing as husband and wife, and will exchange rings and garlands but without priests chanting the "Wedding Mantra".
We wish them a happy marriage and everlasting love.
We would like to call on your support and blessing for this courageous couple for their happy wedding.
Place: Blue Diamond Society
Time: 10 am
