When I found out I had to take off my shirt in Teen movie, I panicked and hit the gym. I was like, “It’s going to be on film, documented, for my children to see. I can’t be 140 pounds. I need to put on a little bit of muscle.
"I’m one of those people that thinks the world changes in smaller and in more
mysterious ways than a lot of people like to think. A lot of traditional charities
and organizations do things that on the surface seem like a good idea, but it
doesn’t change the way that people think about interacting with other people.
Alina Davis, a 23-year-old trans woman, and Allison Brooks, her 19-year-old partner, donned matching white floor-length bridal gowns and married at a civil registry office earlier this month.
As Davis is still legally regarded as male, the office had no choice but to hand them a marriage certificate.
The couple said officials chided them, and appeared to be violent.
‘She called us the shame of the family and said we need medical treatment … I was afraid my pussycat [an affectionate pet name in Russian] would beat the fuck out of her,’ Davis said on her VK page.
But the couple were allowed to sign the papers, meaning a gay couple in Russia are legally recognized as married – even if it’s through a loophole.
‘This is an important precedent for Russia,’ Davis said.
Russia banned same-sex marriage and outlawed ‘gay propaganda’ in 2013.
