USA - 13 Love Stories - Gay Marriage in California

Lawrence Fernandez and Julian Montelbano are a couple who have given a home to 15 teenagers in their years as foster parents, and have recently celebrated the fourth birthday of their adopted son, Jonathan. They met at church 16 years ago and now live in Whittier. Lawrence's parents died of AIDS-related causes. Lawrence and Julian 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. "The day our son's adoption became finalized was the greatest day of our lives together."
