Kazakhstan's First Ever Lesbian Wedding

Vox Populi presents a photo report [ru] about what they call the “first ever lesbian wedding” in Kazakhstan. The photo blog explains:

This was a real wedding. With limousines. With friends and guests. With champagne. With congratulatory speeches. You might ask, “but what about the law?” You see, love does not recognize the law.

Our work building bridges across cultures, languages and perspectives is more urgent than ever before.
