A husband and wife are making headlines after they got married wearing identical wedding dresses.
At first glance, the two look like identical twins or as a lesbian couple, but they are not.
In the photos of the wedding, it appears as though the two young women are tying the knot in a marriage between two people of the same sex, but the reality is more complicated.
This is because they are actually a heterosexual couple, with the man dressing and living as a woman, while his wife was born a woman.
The couple had a hard time getting a marriage license in Russia, where gay and lesbian marriages are prohibited and frowned upon in public.
However, they ultimately received the license despite being dressed as woman, because they are heterosexual and can legally marry each other.
23-year-old Dmitry Kozhukhov, who goes by the name Exy Davis on Facebook, labels himself as “androgynous,” which means that he doesn’t fit neatly into one gender identity.
Davis feels more comfortable as a woman, but is strongly attracted to other women. Davis tied the knot with his bride, 19-year-old Allison Allure, while wearing identical wedding gowns.
