Marine Le Pen wants to delegalize gay marriages. It seems that she probably does not like gays.
But in spite of it, gays like her. And the closer the election is, the more LGBT electorate she gets. Current figures show that approximately 30% of LGBT Frenchmen say they will vote for Le Pen. As we reported before, Le Pen’s rating among LGBT voters during the first round was 20%.

Centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron is set to face off against far-right Front National leader Marine Le Pen in France’s Presidential run-off election on Sunday. Hornet, which is the most popular gay hook-up app in France, polled 5000 gay men ahead of the second-round vote. The poll found that 63.5 percent of gay men will be voting for Emmanuel Macron, but 36.5 percent are backing Marine Le Pen. The younger gay men are, the more support they show to Le Pen. Among gay men aged 18 to 29, support for Le Pen surges to 43.5 percent, behind Macron on 56.5 percent. The sentiment towards Le Pen is different among older gay men. For men aged 30 to 49, support for Le Pen plunges to 32.2 percent, with 67.8 percent backing Macron.
