This photo recently turned the world’s attention to same-sex marriage in France. Rallies like these have been quite a trend lately as current President Fran├žois Hollande wants to legalize same-sex marriage. At the moment France has civil unions for same-sex couples, but no legal marriage rights.

VICE reported that: “Throughout the protest, there was tension in the air and the occasional flare-up. At one point it became very heated when two women hopped the fence and began to make-out intensely. They were swiftly separated before the cops could break up the encounter.”

I love the courage of these women; and I LOVE the faces of the women behind them. These two women had quite an effect.

More body politics?
