Gay Paris, an old phrase for the French capital and endless source of low-brow humor, can wear the name once more in style as the nation celebrates the passing of the “Marriage for All” law and popular singer Mika headlines a free concert in honor of the momentous social change the new law foreshadows.
British gay singer/songwriter Mika will headline a free Paris to celebrate marriage equality in France.
According to French newspaper La Parisienne, Mika will headline the Long Live Equality concert to celebrate France’s gay marriage law that passed last month, and to reaffirm the importance of fighting homophobia.
Originally scheduled to take place on 17 May, International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO), the Long Live Equality concert was rescheduled to 21 May, five days before a national demonstration scheduled by opponents of the ‘Marriage for All’ law.
Even though France passed the ‘Marriage for All’ bill last month, becoming the 14th country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage and gay adoption, the issue continues to divide the nation.
