Gay Hate Crimes on the Rise in Paris France

Gay Travel Warning – Paris may be the city of love – but not gay love. Even though France recently signed a bill for Marriage Equality – gay hate crimes and hate speech are on the rise. 

How does someone have that much hate – to inflict pain – or death – to another human being? Why can’t people just let people be?
Assaults on members of the gay community and incidents of
homophobic hate speech have risen sharply in France over the last year,
according to the annual report by a leading gay rights group, released
on Tuesday.

  Attacks on gay women and men and homophobic speech spiked last year
in the run-up to the French parliament’s approval of a bill
allowing same-sex couples to marry and adopt children, said a leading
gay rights watchdog on Tuesday.

In its annual report, SOS
Homophobie said it recorded 1,977 calls on its helpline in 2012, a 27
percent increase over the previous year.

The group’s head,
Elisabeth Ronzier, said the last few months of 2012 and the start of
this year were “intense,” with hate speech increasing
sharply, especially on the Internet.

She said incidents had doubled in October and November when compared to the previous year, and tripled in December. Read more.
