“My partner Hiroko and I just held a gay wedding at the Tokyo Disney Resort. Even Mickey and Minnie are here to celebrate with us!”

Koyuki Higashi shared the above photo and the happy news of her wedding ceremony at the Tokyo Disney Resort in a tweet that has amassed nearly 7,000 retweets and sparked an article in The New York Times. While Mickey and Minnie blessed the couple, unfortunately the government doesn’t agree: gay marriage is not currently legal in Japan. Still, a huge congrats to Koyuki and Hiroko, and let’s hope it’s not too long before marriage equality is a reality around the world. [Twitter via NYT]
