The first gay couple to be legally wed in France will spend the upcoming weekend in Tel Aviv and will attend the city's Gay Pride Parade as part of their Honeymoon celebrations, a Tel Aviv Municipality spokesperson announced Thursday.
Vincent Autin and Bruno Boileau were invited by Tel Aviv's Global & Tourism Company. Tel Aviv promotes gay rights as a pluralistic city and is happy to host the newly-wed couple, wishing them a big "mazal tov," the statement read.
France passed the law permitting same-sex marriage last month, and Autin and Boileau were the first same-sex couple to wed.
The couple is being hosted by the French Embassy in Israel and the Diaghilev Live Art Hotel.
