About Open Table MCC and Holy Union (Same-Sex Wedding)

About Us

Lesbian or gay wedding in Metro Manila

Open Table Metropolitan Community Church (Open Table MCC) is an ecumenical Christian church that has a specific outreach to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) families and communities. It works under the Metropolitan Community Church (MCC) or the Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches (UFMCC), a Christian movement with 250 member congregations in 23 countries. Learn more about Open Table MCC.

Open Table MCC, like its other MCC church counterparts across the globe, officiates same-sex weddings, which we call “Holy Unions”. We have been doing so since 1968, when we have first wedded a same-sex couple.

A Holy Union is a spiritual joining of two persons regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity. It is a celebration of love witness and affirmed by their friends, family, and the Church.

If you are a same-sex couple, or if you are a couple with one of you being a trans*, and you are not able to legally marry each other due to the laws of the Philippines not having a same-sex or marriage equality law yet, you might be interested to have a ceremonious wedding instead, or a 'Holy Union', under Open Table Metropolitan Community Church.
