Rainbow Croquembouche #2 by PetitPlat Rainbow Croquembouche #2 by PetitPlat
Happy Valentine's Day everyone :)

Today I'm celebrating the fact that a law on legalizing gay marriage is on the way in France. It still needs to be approved by the Senate, but we finally hit the right direction and that makes me happy.

Thus to celebrate Valentine's Day AND gay marriage I made a rainbow croquembouche, the rainbow representing the gay community and the croquembouche the wedding. (not the most original granted ^^')

Je vous souhaite une joyeuse Saint Valentin :)

Aujourd'hui je célèbre deux choses, la Saint Valentin et le fait que la loi sur le mariage gay ait passé le premier cap. Il ne manque plus que le Sénat et l'amour aura eu raison :) Oui j'en suis ravie.

Du coup pour célébrer la Saint Valentin ET le mariage gay j'ai fait un croquembouche arc-en-ciel. Les couleurs pour représenter la communaturé gay, le croquembouche pour le mariage. (oui bon ce n'est pas super original ^^')

I was happy about the approved law about gay marriage in France and England, and I hope equal civil rights will be earned by Italian gays too. It will be a longer process here in my Country, for obvious reasons; we are really behind in such matters but I believe it will happen one not-so-far day. :)

well the discussion is open within europe now. Germany did now authorize to adopt the child of your partner even if your partner has the same sex than you (it used to be impossible).
So I think the whole discussion here in France about gay marriage (which I found a bit futile) has somehow waken up Europe out of its middle aged view. :)

England has agreed. It was a big joke in the news, England being usually more conservative in politics than France.

J'adore! Vive les droits des gay, non? Mon père est transsexuelle (C'est une femme maintenant) et je suis pansexual. Je vis en Amérique, et je souhaite le mariage homosexuel est légal partout ici. Excusez mon français, je ne parle pas très bien. ^^;

PetitPlat Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
si, si, vous parlez très bien :)
Et oui, j'espère que tous les humains auront les même droits bientôt. J'ai du mal à comprendre pourquoi ça prend autant de temps et pourquoi autant de gens s'opposent au mariage gay.
But we'll change the world, eventually :)

Didn't know gay marriage was forbidden in France?
I thought it was all the same in Europe :$

It's not just hate though, it's also a form of resistance to change and hiding behind conventions.

Ne t'en fais pas. Même si le Sénat éventuellement rejette la proposition, c'est l'Assemblée Nationale qui aura le dernier mot :)
Et belle sculture au fait. Si je me marie, je commanderai un gâteau comme celui-ci pour célébrer mon mariage et le mariage gay :D

yes! That would be great! I think now that the change is rolling, it should roll over Europe in a few years.

But it's still very odd to me that it takes so long!
