Respect from the palace for one of the Philippines’ most high-profile celebrity weddings of 2014.
Malacanang says that it respects Filipino gay couples’ right to get married, including this months’ wedding between transgender musician-actor Aiza Seguerra and actress Liza Dino.
But it adds that any change to marriage rules in the Philippines will have to go through Congress.
On her Facebook page, Liza Dino-Seguerra said that the couple did not intend to be activists, but were thankful for the respect, calling it a step towards equality and freedom.
The two married in California this month and will have another ceremony in the Philippines next month.
