Testimony ended Wednesday in a historic federal case challenging the constitutionality of California’s ban on same-sex marriage.

The trial included nearly 12 days of wide-ranging testimony on the meaning of marriage, the nature of sexual orientation, and the role of religion in shaping attitudes about both.

Malawi’s government said Monday that it is unmoved by international criticism of the trial of a gay couple charged with unnatural acts and gross indecency, felonies for which they could be imprisoned for up to 14 years.

In a statement Monday, Malawi’s Information Minister Leckford Mwanza Thoto made no apology for the laws that criminalize homosexual acts. He said Steven Monjeza and Tiwonge Chimbalanga were “clearly breaking the laws of Malawi.’’

In 1990, a young entrepreneur named Andrew Isen had a vision. He was a successful man who felt like corporate America was not speaking to him.

“I was openly gay, had a large disposable income and I was not on anyone’s marketing list.” Isen saw an opportunity in the making.

Working off his kitchen table with nothing but an IBM and a phone, Isen started WinMark Concepts, a full-service marketing and communications firm targeting the ‘gay and lesbian community’. He is based in Washington, D.C.
