Demonstration in Favour of Gay Marriage in Paris!

Several NGOs, including the main LGBT associations in Paris, have invited the gay community and their friends to join a demonstration in favour of gay marriage in France on Sunday 16 December.

My Gay Paris will be there to defend equal rights for everybody.

Although the current government is in favour of marriage and adoption for gay couples, several anti-marriage groups have organised demonstrations and have been making a lot of noise. Protests from Civitas and the Archbishop of Paris, André Vingt-Trois are often heavy with homophobic language.  Both the Catholic Church and the outgoing administration are also against gay marriage and have called for protests against the current proposals.

At the same time, dozens of high-profile supporters have come out in favour of gay marriage.  Gay icon and French singer Mylene Farmer was the latest to say that she’s in favour of equality for all, joining several fellow celebrities in signing an open letter published in French newspaper Le Monde.

Commercial organisations are also getting behind the protest, with American Apparel promising to give demonstrators free t-shirts.

Currently, surveys show that a majority of French people are in favour of the government’s proposals, but a growing hostility towards gay people has been recorded in a number of French towns.

The demonstration kicks off on December 16 at 2 pm at the Bastille.

We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
