USA - 13 Love Stories - Gay Marriage in California

Maribeth Fortaleza and Jean Tong were born in the Philippines and Hong Kong respectively. They both emigrated to the U.S. as children where they later met and fell in love. They were recently married on the fourth anniversary of their first meeting. They now live with Jean's family. Fortaleza and Tong are active campaigners fighting for the repeal of Proposition 8. This was the California ballot proposition voted in the November 2008 election, which changed the state constitution to restrict the definition of marriage to opposite-sex couples, eliminating same-sex marriages. They are part of an innovative multimedia project entitled 13LoveStories.com. "I was proud that her mom was like, 'No on Prop 8!'. She doesn't really speak English but you know having that support from her parents actually meant a lot to me. " (Photo by Gideon Mendel/Corbis via Getty Images)
