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.

I HAVE SO MANY HEADCANONS ABOUT THEM YOU DONT EVEN KNOW
makes the bed in the mornings: raleigh or mako after they’ve gotten breakfast because chuck sure as hell isnt making it
has sole posession of the T.V. remote: mako but she allows her two boys to choose sometimes (because chuck and raleigh usually fights over what to watch. often chuck actually likes what raleigh chooses but he likes to bicker with him more)
is the bigger cuddler: RALEIGH IS THE BIGGEST CUDDLER IN THE WORLD
does the laundry: they take turns because none of them wants to deal with raleighs dirty socks but they manage and decided to take turns because raleigh insists that chucks and makos socks arent gods gift to mankinds either
mows the lawn: chuck because mako and raleigh likes to look at him being a little sweaty
shops for groceries: mako because the boys really like their junkfood and for gods sake they need nutrition
comes home drunk at 3am: chuck (is that even a surprise?)
makes breakfast: if raleigh makes it it often consists of lots pancakes, waffles, eggs and bacon. when chuck does it it means cereal and orange juice. sometimes mako likes to make a traditional japanese breakfast. but most of the time they help each other.
remembers to feed the fish: chuck (even though he doesnt want to admit it he’s a big softie and loves looking after the fish)
decorates the apartment: they all do (raleigh brings in A LOT of photographs, mako adds little knickknacks that she likes and brings something that reminds him of home which is usually inspired by the memories he has of his mom)
initiates duets: RALEIGH, but mako jumps on quickly if he’s singing david bowie or 80s ballads and then chuck jumps in last but just as passionately as mako and raleigh
falls asleep first: raleigh or chuck because mako always make sure she can watch them sleep for a little bit before turning in herself

eight female characters [mako mori]
- wicked hella music
- it made me cry more than once
- "we are groot"
- the queen of sci-fi and chris pratt
- basically it was just a band of misfits, not heroes, saving a planet
- tiny dancing groot
- it never took itself too seriously, and even though it was an action movie, it was still funny and heartfelt
- there was about 12% of a romantic subplot, but it never went very far
- just groot in general
