From all walks of life and all parts of France protesters marched in Paris to demand the introduction of gay marriage.

The demonstration is in response to a huge march two weeks ago by opponents of the new law.

There's a sense from the protesters that they want to remind the government of Francois Hollande of its commitment to deliver gay marriage.
