Same-Sex Buddhist Nuptials of the Day: Their union may not be legal, but Yu Ya-ting and Huang Mei-yu on Saturday becameTaiwan’s first lesbian couple to be married in a Buddhist ceremony.
Huang said the couple hoped that a wedding blessed by a Buddhist master would encourage more Taiwanese, 80 percent of whom are Buddhist, to support same-sex marriage.
“I remember when I told my parents that we would get married, their first question was, ‘Is this legal?’” Huang said. “I could only say to them that it would soon, but I didn’t know when would be considered soon. So we hope it will become legal.”
I’m blogging about this again because I’m still trying to pay this ridiculous electric fee. I posted it pretty late last time So I’m not sure that how many people saw it but I’m selling my left over otakon stock.
All the information about it can be found here. Please message me if you’re interested.
Also my roommate is taking art card commissions for the bill as well and she really does a great job on them.
Can’t buy any but I can help promote this.

My late grandma got me started on my obsession with elephants at a young age. She gave me my first marble elephant figurine. When she passed, I got all of her elephant-themed belongings. Everywhere I go around the world, I pick up an elephant, so it felt right to get this tattooed on me at some point in my life. :)
Though it’s on my ribs, it was surprisingly not as painful as I thought it would be! And it’s definitely healing well. Alex did a great job.
