France's First Gay Newlyweds Honeymoon in Tel Aviv: PHOTO


Vincent Autin and Bruno Boileau, France's first gay married couple, are making a splash in Tel Aviv.

From the Times of Israel:

On Friday morning, after spending the night at the seaside mansion of French Ambassador Christophe Bigot, Autin and Boileau arrived at Tel Aviv’s Gan Meir for a morning of music and speeches before the annual Pride Parade.

“France has voted for the law of love,” Autin, a 40-year-old gay rights activist, told a group of reporters who gathered to greet him and his new spouse. “For us it’s very important to be a bridge, especially here in the Middle East, so that what’s happened in France, and the way we are received and embraced here, can become an example for the rest of the Middle East.”

  3. Why shouldn't they stay with the Ambassador, this was a land mark decision in France, the fact that Monsieur Bigot it appears approved and offer them the hospitality of the French government is to be commended.
