France legalizes gay marriage
AP: French lawmakers legalized same-sex marriage on Tuesday in a 331-225 vote in the Socialist majority National Assembly.
France’s justice minister says the first weddings under the new legislation could be in June. Tuesday’s legalization comes after months of powerful protests against the bill which brought hundreds of thousands to Paris in mass marches.
France is the 14th country to legalize gay marriage.
