Ahead of France's presidential election, two men were symbolically wed today in Lannion to highlight the country's lack of marriage equality.
David Humily and Julien Abernot were part of "Wedding for All" protests held across the country. A member of the "Paris convent of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence" did the officiating.
The Sisters is an order of queer nuns founded in San Francisco in 1979 that has chapters all over the world.
