Italian Gay Couple Weds in Hawaii, Prepares to Return to Italy

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

Italian Gay Couple Marries

We thought we’d share a little more happy, personal news. Two friends of ours, Fabrizio and Marco, just married on a beach in Hawaii at sunset. Their wedding took place on Kauai at Tunnels beach on September 24th, and they are now fully legally married in the US.

The wedding was a beautiful ceremony, attended by Mark and I and the wonderful officiant, Kate Sample. Marco and Fabrizio wrote their own vows, which brought the rest of us to tears. They’ve been waiting a long time to do this – together almost 13 years, they are unable to marry back home in Italy, and the last time they were here, marriage equality was illegal in California.

We had planned a trip at that time to Washington state, where it was legal, but the anti gay forces snatched that possibility away when they put the ultimately futile measure on the ballot to try to block marriage equality.

Now, as our dear friends prepare to return home to Italy, they have to face the news that the Interior Minister, Angelino Alfano, is pandering to right-wing voters by stating that the country will not recognize any same sex weddings from other countries. In one small ray of good news, the mayor of Bologna, the region where Fabrizio and Marco live, is standing up for the rights of same sex couples and refusing to annul their marriages.

Still, they face a long uphill battle against the country and the Catholic Church for recognition at home.

Here are some more photos of the happy couple – enjoy!
