“This is a celebration for our couples,” Sampat says. “LGBT people have been fighting this fight for a long time and they aren’t ones who are going to sit down and watch other people fight without offering a hand to help.”
After the ceremonies, an undocuqueer activist and one of the brides, emerged from the church with her new spouse. They were followed by a group of six other bi-national couples affected by U.S. immigration policies.
“This is one unique event that really beautifully captured that DREAMers and LGBT people are not two different communities,” Sampat said.
