While we took Pride Month to educate ourselves regarding various topics in regard to the LGBTQ+, I feel like looking at how oppressed the queer community is within our country, we are still a long way from equal rights. However, one little good news that I can share with you is the news of this adorable gay couple from Kolkata, Cheitan Sharrma and Abhishek Ray who got married in a full-fledged ceremony recently.

Cheitan Sharrma and Abhishek Ray are a gay couple from Kolkata who married on July 3 in a conventional wedding ceremony. The photos from their lovely celebration, which was attended by close relatives and friends, went viral on social media, leaving people speechless. Cheitan talked about the wedding saying that their wedding was going to take place in December last year and due to Covid-19 his family was unable to attend at the time. They then decided to postpone the celebration to July. He added that they were both active in every aspect of wedding planning.

Cheitan also emphasized that everyone was highly supportive of their desire to marry. He said that they found a lot of supportive people wherever they went for the wedding arrangement – hotels, the event provider, decorators, and photographers. He said that even their Panditji was really supportive.
