Meet the world’s first married gay threesome who have tied the knot in the world’s first three-way same-s*x marriage in Uthai Thani Province, Thailand.
Three gay men Joke, 29, Bell, 21 and Art, 26, have become internet sensation after they got married on Valentine’s Day this year and now are thought to be the world’s only wedded male threesome. The ceremony included the traditional exchange of vows and rings, all three declared their love for each other and agreed to share their home and responsibilities.
And although their union was not not legally registered the trio were joined together under Buddhist Law. Sharing his feelings about the ceremony and people’s reactions to it Bell, said, “I think we are first three-way same s*x males to have a wedding, possibly in the world. Some people may not agree and are probably amazed by our decision, but we believe many people do understand and accept our choice. Love is love, after all.”
Art and Joke were living together for five years until they met Joke and after awhile realised they all started to have feelings for each other. In their own words, “We thought that better way to show our love for each other by getting married. It might seem strange to some, but many people understand our bond and the reasons we got married. We love each other and live together like brothers; hopefully this is something the world can understand in the 21st century.”
In Thailand, same-s*x unions are not legally binding, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons may face legal challenges on their s*xual freedoms. However, religious groups there declare their support for civil marriages between gay and lesbian couples.
