This customised marriage agency for gay couples is different from numerous dating sites that cater to gays as here they familiarise themselves with the clients for nearly a year before finding their partner, based on their requirements.
The costs are really very high for a common Indian gay/lesbian. It will hardly work for Indians at this time. But the awesome thing is that India finally has its own reliable gay marriage portal, in spite of highly homophobic society and laws. Reasons for high charges may be, it is an international protal, it will help only those who are looking for partners seriously and because of highly homophobic Indian society and laws.
And It’s just the start. Ofcourse, it will it will have reach to every Indian gay/lesbian when homosexuality will be legalized in India and portal will get people’s trust.
It has already received nearly 250 enquiries from gays, mostly Indians, and his agency has already helped 29 couples tie the knot through the portal. The agency conducts background checks as well as counselling.
Benhur Samson, who set up arrangedgaymarriage.com said that the idea of the portal came up because several of his gay clients, opting for surrogacy services, were visiting India to get their babies where they’d find partners and would like to stay together.
“In June when (US President Barack) Obama declared marriage equality rights. I realised that while so many heterosexuals were visiting India to get married, then why not do the same for homosexuals.”
