At the heart of a storm of controversy over a pending plan for the legalization of same-gender marriage in France comes a rally of nearly 150,000 supporters of the bill in Paris. Donning rainbow stripes and toting LGBT friendly signs, thousands took to the streets to march for gay rights in the French capital.
Sunday in Paris, France it’s estimated 60,000 to 150,000 people peacefully marched in support of marriage equality. They carried banners reading "A Gay Marriage Is Better Than A Sad One" or "Single, Free in Solidarity" & the words "equality" & "choice". The march consisted of gay & lesbian couples, children & allies. They all showed their support for the Socialist government's plan to legalize same-gender marriage & adoptions in France. French President Francois Hollande said he would enact his "marriage for everyone" plan within a year of coming to power in May. The text will go to parliament next month.
