Around 150 people attended their wedding party at Huong Dong Que restaurant, a stone’s throw from a local people’s committee which is in charge of marriage registration, located in the provincial capital Thu Dau Mot City, newswire Infonet reported.
The ‘groom’ is Le P., the seventh in a family of 8 siblings who all come from the southernmost province of Ca Mau, according to Le Van Nh., claiming to be ‘his’ father.
The other half is reportedly a woman named Kim Ph., from the same province, whose parents were believed to refuse to partake in the wedding.
Giang, identifying himself as the elder brother of the ‘bride’, who joined the party said he did so because of the love for his sister.
The bride broke up with her former husband before deciding to ‘marry’ P., the father revealed.
Nh. also said that the couple who are factory workers at a local company had made no marriage registration at local competent agencies before their wedding.
In May, another same-sex wedding took place in Kien Giang Province – Ca Mau’s neighbor – after which local authorities fined the couple, who are gay. They left the province for another afterward.
Huge attention had been drawn to what was believed to be the first wedding between two lesbians in 2010.
A video of their wedding party in Hanoi attracted more than 10,000 views within a few days after being uploaded to YouTube.
