Kana and Tiffany

tiffany-kana-blogFour years ago, Tiffany was teaching English in Japan, and met Kana through a mutual friend. Despite the language barrier, they hit it off immediately, and after a year, got engaged. Now, they live together in Los Angeles, where Tiffany works in television, and Kana, who was a chef in Japan, now studies at LACC.

But, without a decision from the Supreme Court on Prop. 8 and DOMA, their future is uncertain. Without restoring the freedom to marry in California, Tiffany and Kana won’t be able to get married. With DOMA still in place, Kana won’t be able to immigrate legally.

Tiffany and Kana are ready to take the next step in their relationship. Tiffany and Kana are ready for marriage.

“It’s the security of knowing that we will be together for the rest of our lives,” said Tiffany. “It will be a big release — she’ll be in the country for good, and we can move forward with our lives, and think about things like owning a house and having children.”

Tiffany and Kana are among thousands of Californians ready for marriage. From San Diego to San Francisco, and from Riverside to San Jose, loving same-sex couples are waiting for the opportunity to express their commitment to each other in the same way their straight friends and family can.
