When a Russian court threw out their request to marry in Russia, Irina Shipitko and Irina Fedotova-Fet traveled to Toronto, Canada. On October 23, 2009, they were married in Toronto hoping their Canadian marriage will help to advance their struggle for equality and acceptance back home. With the support of their lawyer, Nikolai Alexeyev, they will pursue their case to Russia's Supreme Court and to the European Court of Human Rights.
