All Because Two People Fell In Love – Iea & Ia’s Wedding

Lesbian or gay wedding in Metro Manila

It’s always inspiring to see two people fall in love, regardless of gender. That’s exactly what we witnessed during Iea and Ia’s wedding.

In the Philippines, there is no law yet for marriage equality for same-sex or LGBT+ couples. However, there are LGBT+ affirming churches, such as Open Table Metropolitan Community Church, who officiates weddings for same-sex or LGBT+ couples. It is called a “Holy Union” ceremony, which is purely a religious ritual and has no legal bearing.

The couple also recently started their vlog channel on YouTube: Team Bubu.

Cheers and best wishes to the newlyweds, Iea and Ia! 👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩🏳️‍🌈❤️

If you are a same-sex couple / LGBT+ couple 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.
