Although gay marriage has no official status in Japan, this week Tokyo Disneyland announced it would begin allowing same-sex couples to wed on their property. This decision came after 27-year-old Koyuki Higashi inquired if it would be permitted for her to marry her partner there. This announcement is considered groundbreaking in a country where homosexuality is still a taboo topic. Via The Guardian:
Higashi and her partner have visited Disneyland to break their good news to Mickey Mouse, but have yet to set a date for the wedding. "Mickey first looked surprised to hear that we are a couple of girls," she said on her blog. "But we said we were there to thank him … and he celebrated with us."
Disney really does make dreams come true!
New Zealand is on its way to legalizing same-sex marriage, and one Anglican church is all for it. St.-Matthew-in-the-City in Aukland put this one up and it has already been torn by one angry citizen.
Get all your politicking at Pundit Kitchen!
This is my marriage proposal video to the love of my life. I cant imagine anyone telling us we cannot get married!
Turning your proposal into a club track complete with marching band? The proposal bar has just been raised so high I can't even see it anymore. Sorry anybody who was going to pop the question today. Back to the drawing board.
