Marcel Hampac (in tuxedo) and Maria Cecilia Lumor are pictured during their same-sex wedding ceremony in Lucena town, Quezon province, south of Manila, October 19, 2013. The influential Catholic church in the predominantly Catholic Philippines is against same-sex marriages and firmly opposes any form of legislative measures legalizing the union in Congress, local media reported. Filipinos are generally tolerant with homosexuals, with celebrities coming out of the closet and transgenders holding their own cabaret shows.
