A same-sex couple was married on Romanian television for the first time this week.

Towleroad reports:

On a recent episode of a Romanian reality game show, a gay couple’s wedding not only won the ceremony competition, but also became the very first televised broadcast of a gay wedding in Romania’s history. Daniel and Mihai, who have been together for 14 years, decided to share their Bucharest wedding with viewers as a statement because of Romania’s laws prohibiting gay weddings or civil partnerships for same-sex couples. Billed as a lifestyle reality game show, Four Weddings and a Challenge involves four brides/grooms attending each other’s weddings and rating them on dress, venue, food and overall experience.

Romania doesn’t yet recognize marriage equality, but maybe this will open the door a little.
