In a first same-sex wedding in Telangana, a gay couple from Hyderabad solemnized their relationship.

34-year-old Abhay Dange and Supriyo Chakraborty, 31, dated for eight years before they got married in the presence of their friends and family members on Saturday.

In India, same-sex couples cannot register their marriage under the law, although homosexuality was decriminalized by the Supreme Court in 2018.

Supriyo Chakraborty and Abhay Dange exchanged vows and rings in a “promising ceremony” on December 18, TOI reported.

The ceremony, held on the outskirts of Hyderabad, consisted of a mix of both Punjabi and Bengali traditions.

Prior to the wedding, they also had a mehendi and haldi ceremony and a sangeet function.
