Pakistan: Without Ceremony

A man and his trans bride were arrested in Pehawar, Pakistan last week, after authorities accused them of holding a "marriage ceremony".
Malik Iqbal, a 50 year-old businessman, and a 19-year old eunuch, Rani (Queen) Sangeeta, have been remanded in custody. The 43 guests were also detained. The pair deny the charge, saying the event was just Rani's birthday party.
Coverage of this case in the UK and US press to date - zero.
Views of Madonna, Elton John and Peter Tatchell - unknown.
Go figure.
