For better and worse, the French and their complicated relationship with marriage equality continue to make news. After France became the 14th nation to recognize same sex unions, Vincent Autin and Bruno Boileau (pictured above) became the first couple to marry under the new law on Wednesday.

This was after hundreds of thousands of “dead-enders” in the predominantly Catholic country protested the new law over the weekend, as well as this extremist. They’re acting like nobody’s ever been gay in France! So here’s a list to prove there are gay French and probably always have been. And now they can get married. A votre santé!
