India's first gay marriage solemnised in Yavatmal

Nagpur, Jan 13 (UNI) In the first-ever gay marriage in India, a couple of youths, an Indian-American and a Chinese-American, have tied the knot in a traditional ceremony in Yavatmal district of Maharashtra.
According to sources, the ceremony took place on the night of December 30, 2017, at a hotel situated at State Bank square in Yavatmal.
A select gathering of 70-80 'baratis' from home and abroad attended the marriage.
