“If it helps someone who is being bullied in school for their sexual orientation to see it as something normal, then that’s great. It’s not something that should be hidden just because you belong to a particular institution,” Chema stated.
According to Gay Star News, the newlywed couple spent their honeymoon on a tour in the U.S. Congratulations to the newlyweds!
In June 2015, the United States legalized same-sex marriages by a supreme court ruling.
