Wedding Bells are ringing and it’s time to welcome the first trans-gender couple of Kerela. India witnesses a proud moment as yet another couple ties a knot under the Special Marriages Act of India. What’s more, the couple has been blessed by both the families and have now entered the holy sacrament of matrimony.
The marriage comes as a testament of insurgent power against the years of backlash and injustice faced by the minority and marginalized communities of India. According to reports, Ishaan had undergone a female-male sex change surgery three years ago and has tied the knot with well know trans activist and TV show anchor Surya. Ishaan is a member of Oasis, a self-help group for transgenders. Surya has also undergone Male-Female surgery in the past.
Prominent personalities who took part in the function included former MP TN Seema, Tourism Minister Kadakampally Surendran, activist and academic J Devika, Corporation Mayor VP Prasanth, dubbing artist Bhagyalakshmi and others.
The wedding hosted over 500 guests, including transgenders to bless the new couple and danced unabashedly as the wedding bells ringed. The wedding was also just like any other regular event, but with a different zealous of energy and euphoria in the air.
