French Anti-Gay Marriage Groups Send Mixed Messages With Bizarre Protests

Theatrical homoerotic performance or anti-gay marriage protest? Hard to tell.

They call themselves Les Hommen, a French action group against marriage equality.

The slogans on their bodies, written in French and English, declare "No gay marriage", "Save kids" and "Demo [democracy] dead".


A fake Tumblr was created to turn the colorful protests against themselves, claiming the group does in fact stand for equal rights.

The caption for this photo reads, "Pants of all colors and masks to expose our opponents and their homophobia that dare not speak its name."

Behind this artistic performance is the pro-life organization, Alliance Vita. Flash mobs are meant to spread joy, not hate!
