British Embassy In Dominican Republic Marries First Gay Couple In Caribbean

A gay male couple tied the knot Wednesday at the British Embassy in the Dominican Republic, making them the first same-sex couple to marry in the Caribbean.

The embassy announced the marriage on its official Twitter account.

“First #SameSexWedding in @ukindomrep and in the #Caribbean between British and Dominican national @UkinCaribbean,” the embassy messaged its followers.

The tweet included a photo of two men dressed in dark suits as one slipped a wedding ring on the other’s hand. The men’s faces were not visible in the photo and their names were not released.

On its website, the British Embassy in Santo Domingo explains that gay British citizens have been allowed to marry in the embassy since June 3.

A gay marriage bill approved last year took effect in Britain and Wales in March.
