PARIS (AP) - Groups opposing President Francois Hollande's plan to legalize gay marriage and adoption have taken to the streets across France.
Hollande said he would enact his "marriage for everyone" plan within a year of coming to power this May, but vocal opposition from religious leaders, some politicians and parts of rural France has divided the country.
Saturday's event, entitled "march for everyone," attracted several thousand people in cities such as Lyon, Marseille and Paris.
There is a dress code of blue, white and pink aimed to put a spin on the French tricolore flag's traditional colors.
A recent survey found that majority of French favor gay marriage, the support for adoption for gay couples hovers at around 50 percent.
