This is the first time a transsexual couple tied the knot, legally, in the Southern Indian State of Kerala. Speaking on the occasion of Surya and Ishaan's marriage, Renju Renjimar, adopted mother of Surya said, "We adopt trans people as our children to make them financially stable and to help them lead a dignified life in society". The couple was blessed by family members and friends from the transcommunity. The marriage hall was tastefully decorated, the relatives and others jubilant with the centre of attention being the couple in their colourful attire.

Ishaan and Surya underwent sex reassignment surgery in 2015 and 2014 respectively. The transgender community conducted the marriage with great fervour, complete with song and dance.

A number of dignitaries including former Rajya Sabha Member T N Seema (CPI-M), writer-activist J Devika, CPI-M councillor I P Binu were among those who attended the marriage function.

However, both families accepted their decision and were a part of the wedding celebrations that had over 1000 guests.

Surya is a TV actor and member of the State Board for Transgender Justice.
