Love is love is love.
Did you know? In 2016, it was still illegal for same-sex couples to be married in 74 countries. Even more progressive nations — such as Australia — have outlawed gay marriage, an action some proclaim is an infringement of human rights.
Because love is love is love, and the world could use more positivity and kindness, True Activist is sharing a compilation (originally published on Bored Panda) of same-sex couples professing their love and tying the knot. Many of the couples featured had to wait years before they were legally allowed to wed — which makes this series even more heartwarming.
Hopefully, in the future, fewer people will fear their sexual orientation and celebrate newfound love like the couples in the following photos have.
