“I couldn’t believe the masses of people who were out protesting against something that doesn’t affect them in any way. To really see real people that are so emotionally invested in denying you equality is really disconcerting.”

– Martina Navratilova (referring to the May 26, 2013 march in Paris, where over 100,000 people came on streets to oppose same-sex marriage law – three days before the first gay couple legally tied the knot in the country).
