Japanese Gay couple and Mickey Mouse

Thanks to the AFP news agency I know that just a few days after U.S. President Barack Obama came out in favor of gay marriage, another supporter of same-sex unions has emerged in Japan….

It’s not a politician or a Show business personality, we are talking of Mickey Mouse
And this is because despite their having no legal status, same-sex couples in Japan are able to hold fabolous fairytale wedding ceremonies at hotels inside Tokyo Disney Resort .
-Of course including ceremonies at the Cinderella Castle- a company spokeswoman said yesterday.
And pretty soon there will be the first same sex couple marriage at the resort……
Mrs. Koyuki Higashi and her partner Hiroko have in fact visited Tokyo Disneyland, where they met Mickey Mouse to give him the good news……

-Mickey first looked surprised to hear that we are a couple of girls -Higashi wrote- But we said we were there to thank him because same-sex weddings can be held at the Disney Resort, and he celebrated with us-.

The only real problem is that it is not known if Higashi and her partner will go ahead with a wedding at the Cinderella Castle, which costs the absurd record of 7.5 million yen.
And in any case: Congratulations and happy wedding!
