May 17 is the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia. In France, five years after the legalisation of same-sex marriage, homophobia seems to be getting worse. LGBT groups are sounding the alarm about an increase in homophobic attacks and insults – in public, in the workplace and even at home. According to the interior ministry, more than 1,000 homophobic acts took place in 2017, an average of three per day. FRANCE 24's team went to speak to victims.
