On June 26, 2015, same-sex marriage became legal across the United States. For Leon, this was a pivotal moment, and it would mean he would be able to finally marry the love of his life, Bart, whom he had been with for many years.  

Leon is an immigrant from Australia and decided as a young adult he would go on a two-year mission for his church, which brought him to Salt Lake City, Utah, where he served the mission. He fell in love with Utah, and when he returned to Australia after his mission, he applied for a student visa and returned to Salt Lake City to attend college. He later met his husband, and because they were not able to legally marry for many years, it meant that they were not able to apply for the same immigration benefits as a married man and woman were be able to. You will hear about Leon’s immigration journey, and the roller coaster of emotions he went through. He is still a proud Australian, but he’s also found his home here in the United States with his love.
