FRANCE: Straight MPs "Kiss For Solidarity"

Via Gay Star News:
Two straight French members of parliament decided to show their solidarity with gay rights advocates in their own way – they kissed. Socialist MPs Yann Galut and Nicolas Bays joined the 'Marriage for All' protests on Sunday (27 January), where a reported quarter of a million people marched across the country. Galut said: ‘We’re both straight, we’re both married with children. But today with the kiss of solidarity, it meant we, as parliamentary members who start fighting for same-sex marriage legislation in two days, we stand in solidarity with homosexuals. ‘We stand in solidarity with their demands.’
The French National Assembly begins its debate on marriage equality today.
