First time in Telangana, gay couple to say ‘I do’ | Hyderabad News

HYDERABAD: In a first, a gay couple living in the city is all set to make their relationship official on December 18. Not by tying the knot but by simply taking vows and celebrating their togetherness for the last eight-years along with their friends and family.
While same sex marriages are yet to be legalized in India, Supriyo Chakraborty and Abhay Dang have decided to instead hold a grand celebration of their relationship without involving any marital rituals or formalities.
“The idea is to celebrate our union with our friends and family. We will have all symbolic rituals such as taking vows together, exchange of rings, cake cutting etc. We are happy together and that’s what we want to celebrate,” said Chakraborty, who works as a faculty member at a city-based hotel management institute. His partner, Abhay Dang, works as a software developer with an IT firm.
The two had met through an online dating app way back in 2012. “In our first date itself, we knew that we both were meant for each-other. Back then, I had not come out of the closet. However, with Abhay’s support, I came out to my family and subsequently met his family. After a few hiccups, our families accepted each-other as a couple and for who we were,” said Supriyo.
Even though their relationship may not be legalised in the country, they are hopeful that someday, they would be recognised as ‘husbands’. “We both believe that most people just don’t have any exposure to a queer couple. Therefore, their perception about gay couples is limited. Greater the awareness among people, greater would be the acceptance,” said Chakraborty.
