A gay couple have released a video of their wedding in New York that was shown at the first public same-sex marriage celebration in Malaysia.
Reverend O Young Wen Feng (also known as Ngeo Boon Lin) and Phineas Newborn III celebrated their marriage at a Chinese banquet hall in Kuala Lumpur for 250 guests on Saturday.
In the video of their wedding in New York, Boon says to Newborn:
‘Phineas, it’s not easy to be gay, not even in the United States let alone in my home country, Malaysia. But I am so glad that I have come out of fear, because by coming out, I found you.’
Holding back tears, Newborn tells Boon during the ceremony, ‘I believe you came into my life to help me define who I was really meant to be’ and says Boon is ‘the greatest reward for having to endure some of the greatest struggles of my life’.
