The first publicly gay prime minister in France, Gabriel Attal, has said his appointment is proof that “mindsets are evolving.”

Addressing the National Assembly in Paris for the first time yesterday [Tuesday 30 January], the 34-year-old also acknowledged 10 years of marriage equality in his country.

Attal was appointed prime minister by the French President Emmanuel Macron on 9 January, replacing Élisabeth Borne in the role.

According to AFP, Attal told lawmakers that France was “tearing itself apart just 10 years ago over same-sex marriage.”

“Being French in 2024,” he continued, “means […] being able to be prime minister and openly gay.”
