Parliament tells Commission to step up fight against gay discrimination

MEPs called on the European Commission on Tuesday to step up its fight against sexual discrimination, after more than 100.000 people marched through Paris and Lyon on Sunday protesting the legalisation of same-sex marriage. In a non-binding resolution adopted with 394 votes in favour and 176 against, the European Parliament wants the EU executive to draw up a pan-European strategy to better protect fundamental rights of gay, lesbian, transexual and bisexual people.
