Supriyo Chakraborty and Abhay Dang, dubbed the “first” gay men’s wedding in Telangana, tied the knot, making their almost decade-long romance official. According to Supriyo, the wedding conveyed a clear message to everyone that happiness does not require anyone’s permission.

The gay males are thought to be Telangana’s first gay pair. The wedding was a pure celebration of being together with family and friends, despite the fact that the marriage could not be recorded, he noted.

The wedding

Supriyo and Abhay, both 31 and 34 years old, exchanged rings and exchanged vows at a wedding ceremony on Saturday in a resort near here. Sophia David, the couple’s acquaintance who is also from the LGBTQ community, presided the ceremony.

For the traditional ceremonies, which included mehendi for all men, the pair wore designer sherwanis, but for the ring ceremony, they wore white tuxedos with bow ties. Kathak performances were part of the sangeet ceremony.

Supriyo and Abhay, who work in the hotel and information technology industries, met in 2012 through an online dating app and have been living together since then. The wedding celebrations, according to Supriyo, were held to “celebrate our union” with friends and family. They would register their wedding whenever same-sex marriages are legalised in the country, he said.

The gay men gathered with close friends and family members to commemorate the occasion. PTI quoted Supriyo as saying: “The event lasted two days (December 17 and 18). It was a gathering of all of our close friends and relatives. Mehndi and Sangeet were the first things we did. Abhay and I are from different parts of the country. I am Bengali, and he (Abhay) is Punjabi. We attempted to capture as much of the essence as possible, including the gowns we wore. We had a Haldi ceremony on Saturday, and Sophia David officiated our wedding.”
