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.

Hey everyone: for those of you who are wondering, the Westboro Baptist Church and gonna bandwagon on he death of Micheal Brown in order to promote even more hateful rhetoric. Please don’t let them do this. If you can, send the people of Ferguson support. If not, then signal boost this as a warning.
I’ve lived most of my life in Topeka. I know the Westboro Baptist church. This is not something we need to signal boost. No matter what you say to them or how you act toward them, the WBC will continue to preach their message of hate. I’m sure they have a whole sermon prepared for anything that gets brought up in the news. The only way to deal with them is to ignore them. There’s no real way to beat them at anything because almost everyone who lives in their gated fortress is a lawyer. They make money by riling people up at their protests, filming them when they retaliate and suing them. They even make money every time someone visits their website. They’ve won a supreme court case guys. Just. Fucking. Ignore. Them.
A customer came in to my gas station today and prepaid twenty dollars on one of the gas pumps. A few minutes later, I saw her making angry gestures at me and I noticed that the money was registered on her pump, but wasn’t dispensing gas. She obviously had not selected a fuel grade. As I was walking from the register to the pump, I noticed her go back and select a fuel grade. When I asked her if she had selected a fuel grade, she said “I’ve been pumping gas for twenty five years, sweetheart,” Like pumping gas is some ancient art form that can be honed over that amount of time. It’s fucking something your mom shows you in an afternoon. She then followed that with “But I guess it’s working now.” Customer’s suck sometimes.
