The first gay couple who hold wedding ceremony in Shenzhen

Mark (25, left) and An’an (23) held their wedding ceremony on August 21 in southern China's Shenzhen city. This gay couple are two fresh university graduates in the city. After the couple exchanged rings, they and their five guests—three other ladies and An'an's best man, maybe they threw the bouquet at the gawkers—finished off the wedding with a lunch.

They said that their ceremony gathered many impromptu spectators who happened to be at the Luohu district restaurant Saturday, but they both invited family members to the wedding, none of whom showed up. The service was conducted by a lady friend.

“We’re normal people,” the couple said in a statement to the press, “We just happen to have different genes which gave us a different sexual orientation. Aside from that, we’re exactly the same as any other husband and wife couple. By holding this wedding ceremony, we hope to earn people’s blessings and support.”

Comments online are mostly supportive of the guys.
