This week he visited the Danish capital for the first time – to make his own personal fairy tale come true by marrying his boyfriend Yury (30, right).

Even though it was not classic love from Yury’s side from the beginning, he was the one asking the important question on a holiday in Egypt.

“That was a Rubicon for him,” compares Leonid the proposal with the metaphor of a point of no return. The Snow Queen is one of the most popular fairy tales in my country and my favorite.

LGBT pioneers Denmark is far from foreign to the Russians: “Everybody in Russia knows H. The Mermaid is iconic, too.” The Danish judicial system has been a crucial part of Leonid and Yury’s decision to get married in Copenhagen, where your race, sex or sexual orientation is not of importance.

Copenhageners are open-minded, relaxed and tolerant people.

In Denmark's capital city you can be free, open and most of all yourself.

For Russian Leonid (34, left), Denmark has always been a kind of fairy tale kingdom.

It was in the Russian capital that he met Yury, who is a freelance graphic designer.

They started seeing each other after they found each other via an i Phone dating app.

This was 1.5 years ago, and they have moved in together since.

For Leonid, who had not had any serious relationships before, it was love at first sight, and he decided to try out the relationship thing with Yury.
