Same-sex marriage protest

, April 24, 2013

A French gendarme apprehends a demonstrator during clashes at the end of the "La Manif pour Tous" (Demonstration for All) to protest against France's legalisation of same-sex marriage, in Paris, early April 24. French parliament approved a law allowing same-sex couples to marry and to adopt children on Tuesday, a flagship reform pledge by French President which sparked often violent street protests and a rise in homophobic attacks. The law legalises gay marriage and gives gay and lesbian couples adoption rights. - Reuters/Philippe Wojazer
