The first gay marriage in France has been celebrated in Montpellier.
Vincent Autin and Bruno Boileau married on 29 May 2013 in this southern French city— the first gay couple to be officially wedded as the new law legalizing gay marriage took effect.
There have been numerous protests by Catholics and conservative groups against the gay marriage law over the past several months.
Apparently, an anonymous caller threatened to disrupt the marriage, but the ceremony went ahead despite the threat.
Libération reports on the marriage.
