France’s new prime minister, socialist François Hollande, is wasting no time advancing LGBT equality. His office issued a communiqué yesterday recognizing the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia and committing to full marriage equality and same-sex adoption rights:

On the occasion of International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, the Prime Minister reaffirmed the Government’s commitment against violence and discrimination perpetrated as a result of sexual orientation or gender identity. The Government is determined to challenge prejudice and to put an end to discrimination and violence. It will implement the commitment of the President of the Republic to the right to marriage and adoption to gay couples.
