Tens of thousands of people took to the streets of France to call for gay marriage to be legalized. Around 150,000 people joined the ‘demonstration for equality’ in Paris’s Place de la Bastille yesterday (16 December), urging the government to pass a same-sex marriage bill.
Protesters carried banners with slogans including ‘The right for all to choose’, ‘Love Has No Barriers’ and ‘Talk About Love’, reported France 24.
Rallies were also held in several other cities in France, including Toulouse, Marseille, Lyon and Nantes.
