A lesbian couple recently married in Russia thanks to a legal loophole.
Sofia Grozovsky and Lynne Reid got married at a registry office in Moscow with over 40 friends and family in attendance to help them celebrate.
Video uploaded to YouTube by Russian news site Grani.ru shows the couple tangling with authorities but ultimately securing their marriage certificate because Lynne is transgender and is still legally male according to her passport.
“We were going to wait until the day same-sex marriage became legal in Russia, but it is still extremely complicated for transgender people to change their documents,” Lynne said, according to Gaystar News.
“If the woman who I love has a passport that says she’s still a man, then it means there was nothing stopping us from doing this.
“I sincerely hope, in the process, any homophobes burst with impotent rage.”
