France’s first married gay couple in Tel Aviv


Vincent Bruno Autin and Boileau, the first same-sex couple to have married in France since the adoption of the "marriage for all" law, have headed to Tel Aviv for their honeymoon and to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Gay Pride Parade.

The trip has been offered by the city of Tel Aviv and its "Global Tel-Aviv and tourism" agency.

During their stay, from 6 to 9 June, the couple will be hosted by France’s ambassador to Israel, Christophe Bigot, at his residence in Jaffa.

Since the decline of AIPAC, which had leaned on the evangelical organizations in the U.S., the Zionist movement has set its eyes on the gay community to constitute a new lobbying base.
