Are your eyes playing tricks on you? Maybe.
Take another look at that picture up there. They’re not twins, not even sisters. They are romantically involved, and they might be best friends, but they’re definitely not gay. The couple pictured above are husband and wife. Which one is the husband? Find out after the break!
There is often a lot of controversy over crossdressing, no matter which part of the world you live in. There are people who don’t think well of crossdressers, which is perfectly fine since everyone should be entitled to their own opinions, but for some unknown reason, there seems to be a handful of those who think that crossdressing makes people “turn gay”.
Until some scientist can prove that bizarre hypothesis, I’m not buying that story. One person might not be enough to prove anything, but Alina Davis (whose actual name is Dimitriy Kozhuhov), is androgynous but was born a man and just recently got married to a woman while dressed in a wedding dress.
The 23-year-old Russian dresses as a woman most of the time and looks almost like a carbon copy of his 21-year-old wife, Ellison Brux. Same-sex marriages aren’t legal in Russia, and the twin-like couple encountered deterring opinions from the registry office when they wanted to get married dressed as two brides, but the authorities had no means of refusing their union because they are by birth a man and a woman.
Alina reveals that they faced obstacles even on their big day, and were made to use the establishment’s rear entrance in the registry officer’s attempt to hide them from the public’s eye as they were “a disgrace”. We think they look exactly like a just-married couple should: unable to keep their hands off each other.
▼ Managed to guess which of the pair is the husband yet?
▼ This is Alina, the man in the controversial pair.
Social norms are different everywhere, but I’m pretty sure there are lots of things that people do that are way more disgraceful than crossdressing or accepting your loved ones for who they are. How would you react if your significant other wanted to walk down the aisle dressed just like you? Share your views in the comments section below!
