Marriage equality continues to be a battle that the gay community is engaged in around the world. The obstacles to overcome are different in each nation. For Victor Manuel Aguirre and Victor Fernando Urias, getting married in their hometown of Mexicali in the Mexican state of Baja California is a battle fraught with exasperating tricks and bureaucratic hurdles from their opponents. Yet these two wonderful men manage to get past these humiliations with courage and enormous perseverance. Their eventual victory is a heroic and deeply gratifying example of the power of love that would pave the way for many other couples to follow.
