The Opéra Garnier aka The Palais Garnier is the most stunning Opéra in the world (in my opinion) you can’t beat its location, Paris. It was built between 1861 and 1875, today it also houses the Paris Opera Library-Museum.

Gay Marriage: is YES! (Baudry)

Not only that, but the desire to meet again and again, despite the distance. Paris-Montpellier. Montpellier-Paris. The round trips are frequent. Their feelings grow strong. Deep. Definite.

Seven years later, their wedding takes place there. With a big bash.

French magazine Têtu on the gay film that won the Palme d’Or

This year’s Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival has been won by Abdellatif Kechiche’s film about a passionate love affair between two women.  Steven Spielberg, who was President of this year’s jury called it a “profound love story.”  You can watch the video of the awards ceremony and clips from the film.

According to Steven Spielberg, Blue Is The Warmest Colour (“La vie d’Adèle”), which depicts a passionate love affair between two women and has won the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, is a “great love story that anybody can identify with, whatever their sexuality.”

French gay magazine Têtu reviews this year’s outfits at the Cannes Film Festival

French gay magazine Têtu has a special feature on this year’s Cannes Film Festival looking at some of the men whose style stood out.
And on the subject of style, who said that only actresses could shine at Cannes? The days when a tuxedo was the only option for an actor are long gone, and just wearing a regular tie instead of a bow-tie no longer counts as making an effort.
