The history of canadien women Connie Buna (33 years old) and Taryn (32) is similar to so many other couple histories all around the world. The first one is a real state agent and the second one is town planner. They met through a common friend, and after some other comings and goings and some town and destination moving, which did not allow them to coincide in, they started a relation in 2010. Ans as so many other couples, after one year they decided to get married, by a road trip surprise proposal of marriage. Hopefully, they were in Canada, and in February 2013 they coul be able to get married in front of 180 guests in the Vancouver Ukranian Hall, Taryn’s hometown and where both oh them are living at present.

Canada was the fourth worldwide country and the first in North America which legalized the same sex couple marriage, in July 2005. “We are very fortunate to live in the city where we live”, Connie says. “The people are very progresist and openminded”. Nevertheless, in spite of good news, as Connie and Taryn mention, they still have a long road ahead: “We have a lot of transgender friends whose vulnerability situation is quite complex. We wish someday the world realize that we are all the same. We are all people”.
