Lesbian Wedding


Seaside Ceremony for High School Sweethearts

It was “a dream come true” for Kristina Drzymkowski when she celebrated her marriage to Tracy Quient  in October. The Southern California couple were high school sweethearts and chose their 10th anniversary together as the day for their romantic seaside ceremony at Point Vicente overlooking the Pacific in Long Beach. Kristina praised their wedding photographer David England: “He really has a talent for capturing your most precious moments and does it with such grace, style, and courtesy. … We can’t thank him enough for capturing our timeless moments.” (Lots more photos here.)

Tracy made such a beautiful bride in her gorgeous wedding gown, and Kristina (in the suit) took her wife’s name, so congratulations, Mrs. and Mrs. Quient!

The first lesbian couple in Japan

Japan has recently registered its first lesbian couple on the registers. It happened in the Shibuya district, in Tokyo, the first place in the country to allow same-sex marriages. 

The protagonists of this story are Hiroko Masuhara and Koyuki Higashi, the first same-sex couple in Japan to have an official certification of their bond. 

The document has been released by the district mayor after the request made by the couple, in order to promote the gay friendliness of the district and positively promote the public image of it. 

The certificate will allow the couple to have some rights finally recognized, as facilitations on rents, familiar insurance policies and hospital visits. 

An important step ahead for a country that’s been claiming for equal rights for gay and lesbian couples for long time and now is getting something back from the authorities and public opinion.
