This past Tuesday France legalized gay marriage and there was a support rally by our place that had the streets flooded with people. The topic has been an ongoing controversial debate with angry protests. Since we were in Nice last weekend, we had missed the big anti-gay protest that had occurred on Sunday. Now that the legalization has finalized, there are more violence toward gay couples. I think it is happy news for many gay couples, and hopefully the tension will quell between the different groups.
