Ever since the unfair Section 377 which in essence criminalised homosexuality was abolished, the LGBTQ+ community in India has been on a rapid rise.
With the pride month having just ended and a variety of Indian brands participating, showing their support with the community and the LGBTQ+ group also enjoying celebrating, another news regarding it has popped up.
As per reports, 2 girls from the Rohaniya region of Uttar Pradesh apparently got married on 3rd July 2019 as per Hindu customs.
The lesbian couple, who allegedly are said to be cousins too, tied the knot at a Shiva temple in Varanasi.
Apparently, this is one of the first same-sex marriage recorded in the history of Varanasi.
According to reports, one of the girls who is from Kanpur was staying at her cousin’s place to pursue her studies.
It is not known yet exactly how the girls are cousins, whether blood cousins or just name cousins or how their relationship bloomed.
But the couple did get married against the wishes or consent of their families. They wore t-shirt and jeans along with a ‘red chunni’ on their head while the marriage ceremony took place.
