Singapore PM’s nephew marries male partner


Li Huanwu, the nephew of current Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, has married his partner in Cape Town, South Africa. Huanwu, who is also the grandson of Singapore’s first Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew, and his partner, a vet doctor Heng Yirui ,shared the news of their marriage via Instagram on May 24th. “Today I marry my soul mate. Looking forward to a lifetime of moments like this with @hero.unit,” Yirui wrote. The pair were photographed alongside a lavish display in Cape Town and there was a very unusual guest at the wedding –an elephant. The photos, which featured the couple with their arms around each other and another of a dog balancing two wedding rings on its nose, were posted on Facebook with the caption: “Safari before our big day. #lovewins”. Huanwu came out in July last year, during an LGBT exhibition which coincided with Singapore’s Pink Dot Pride event. Homosexuality remains illegal in Singapore.
