France Prepares For First Gay Marriage

March 9, 2014

Autin's father died when he was 17 and he never had a chance to tell him he was gay. He told his mother he was gay when he was 16 and since then she has been a regular feature at gay pride, lobbying for the parents of gay children. During the demonstrations in favour of same-sex marriage, she carried a placard: "Proud to be mother to a gay son." After they marry, Autin and Boileau would like to adopt a child. Montpellier has a police presence on standby. There was going to be a live transmission of the wedding outside the town hall on a big screen, but for security reasons it will not take place.
