MANILA, Philippines — Eleven people with disability (PWD) couples tied the knot in a ‘Kasalang Bayan’ (mass wedding) officiated by Taguig City Mayor Lani Cayetano at Lakeshore Hall, Barangay Lower Bicutan on Wednesday.

According to Cayetano, the mass wedding is a way to assure “Taguigueño PWDs that they can enjoy the same rights as everybody else, including the right to establish a happy family and a loving home, and so much more.”

It specifically aims to provide Taguigueño couples, at least one of whom is a PWD, an opportunity to tie the knot.

The mass wedding program was sponsored by Taguig LGU and organized by the Persons with Disabilities Affairs Office in coordination with the Civil Registry Office.
