Straight French Members of Parliament Kiss To Show Solidarity For Gay Marriage

Straight French MPs kiss

With the French National Assembly beginning its debate on same-sex marriage equality today wo straight French members of parliament took matters into their own hands and lips to show that they are strongly behind gay marriage.

From 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.’

Sometimes, it is the simplest of acts that symbolize the most.
 Chris Kluwe really needs to start doing this and I volunteer to help him.   Pretty please.
