Monique Wilson is set to tie the knot with longtime partner
061215-monique_main.jpgTheater actress Monique Wilson is finally tying the knot this Sunday with her longtime partner Rossana Abueva.

An Interaksyon.com report on Thursday claimed that the ceremony will happen at Notting Hill, London, around 12:30 p.m.

Same sex marriage has been ruled to be legal in United Kingdom since March 2014.

The report likewise quoted the couple’s invitation card: “After seventeen years together, come celebrate our seven year civil partnership into a more revolutionary commitment: marriage (in the eyes of the law), but really — the reaffirming of our radical union with those who have lived and laughed, cried and celebrated, rallied and protested, created and adventured with us these last seventeen years.”

Wilson was best known as The Voice of the Philippines coach Lea Salonga’s alternate in the lead role of Kim in the inaugural 1989 West End production of the hit musical Miss Saigon.

She is also currently the director of One Billion Rising, a global movement against rape and sexual violence against women. One Billion Rising was founded by Eve Ensler, the playwright behind episodic play The Vagina Monologues where Wilson had been part of several times here in the country.

Meanwhile, Abueva is a bank executive based in Singapore.

Wilson and Abueva’s upcoming union will be the second same-sex marriage by a Filipino female celebrity in showbiz’s history. 

Last December, singer-actress Aiza Seguerra tied the knot with actress-beauty queen Liza Dino in San Francisco, California.
