At a time when same-sex marriages are illegal in India, a Telangana gay couple tied the knot and celebrated their love. Supriyo and Abhay hail from different backgrounds, Bengali and Punjabi, respectively. But their love for each other brought them together when they first matched on an online dating app. Soon after their first meeting, they moved in together and had a live-in relationship to understand each other better.
Both their parents accepted their sexuality but like any other Indian parents, they too had to be convinced for the wedding to take place. Supriyo shared that his mother has been his pillar of support throughout. And after 8 long years, they finally tied the knot in an intimate setting with close family and friends.
