Mass same-sex wedding held in Israel to campaign for marriage equality

The couples walked down the aisle at the Tel Aviv LGBTQ Centre in unison, exchanged vows and were joined by hundreds of family and friends at the unofficial marriage ceremony.

Adiya Imra Orr, one half of a couple taking part, wrote in a post on Facebook before the event that she wanted “the state to get out of our underwear and hearts.”

“In Israel 2019, the love of women, men or just non-Jews is still not a love that is worthy of the state’s stamp and therefore illegal,” she wrote.

“Quite a few heterosexual friends ask me, ‘Why you should marry? It’s an old-fashioned institution anyway.’ I would tell them the same about the right to a passport.”
