A right-wing youth leader is calling for a gay propaganda ban in France.
Julien Rochedy, 25, of the National Front demanded a similar law to Russia be introduced.
‘What I know is that the law bans LGBT propaganda in schools. That is their priority, and yes I would like that,’ he said in a radio interview.
‘Why not have it? Why not have it in the streets as well?’
When told Russia has seen several arrests, suicides and murders since the law was introduced, Rochedy said that was ‘complete nonsense’.
