The couple thought that they finally had everything lined up: Their paperwork for a marriage license, their attendance to mandatory counseling, and just to be safe an order from Mexico's Supreme Court to honor their request to complete the first same-sex union in the state of Baja California.
But on January 11, in their fourth attempt at marriage since June 2013 in Mexicali, Baja's desert capital, Victor Manuel Aguirre and Victor Fernando Urias were met with closed doors and once more couldn't get married.
Instead, religious conservatives picketed the municipal registrar offices (along with alleged non-interested parties meant to boost the protesters' numbers) when the two men, known as "Los Victors," arrived with hopes of tying the knot.
Supporters cried foul, and accused the city of obstructing a June 2014 Supreme Court decision in favor of the couple's right to wed in the state. On Friday, a lawyer representing the couple said they would seek to file charges against Mexicali mayor Jaime Diaz Ochoa.
"[The mayor] is the only person that has the authority to shut down city hall," lawyer Jose Luis Marquez told VICE News. "By doing this, he's making it clear that he has been involved in impeding this wedding."

She cites the city’s constitution as defining marriage as a bond between a man and a woman, even though Mexico’s Supreme Court ruled the local definition unconstitutional last year.
At least thirteen other same-sex partnerships in Baja California are also stalled due to local officials’ actions, reports said.
“I have rights, too,” the marriage counselor said during the confrontation outside city hall. “The people of Baja California have more say in the matter.”
Poor little disease-spreading fags.
Mexico is racist due to this. :>}
My heart bleeds. s/
Go cartels go!
Whatever you do, DO NOT scroll down to the comments. There are disgusting and vile photos of bowel movements.
Being a homo in Mexico is dangerous to your health.
And I don’t mean from disease.
They really should get a clue. Pieces of paper from the Mexican supreme court mean nothing.
No one will be upset if they end up disappeared, or perhaps the unfortunate victims of a little accident.
Mexico is like that.
yikes!!!! I missed that.
‘Victor’ is a MAN’S name. A MANLY man’s name. Vic Morrow was an example of a manly man.
These two faggots should be named ‘Victoria’.
Good for Baja.
Good for the Mexicans, not only are they conquering The United States they still have some morals. Maybe because they have morals they are able to conquer a sick people?
I bet some bakery nearby was forced to bake the little faggots a homo cake.
God Bless Jaime!!!!!
Yes, they are insane
at least the mexiclowns are putting up a fight instead of us here in America bowing down to these fudgepackers
