TF1 News, leading French Television, is doing a news piece for its weekly prime time news programme on the stepparents’ rights.
In France, a new section to a proposed legislation granting rights to step-parents states that the new bill is also applicable to households made up of two adults of the same sex. A French bill granting rights to stepparents sparked a row in government last week when a minister described it as an under-handed way of recognizing gay parents and vowed to fight the measure.
TF1 News London Bureau would like to interview in the London area, on camera, gay stepparents on the stepparents’ rights in England and film them with their child to illustrate the interview.
TF1 is the leading broadcaster in France and its prime time news programme attracts on average 8 million viewers a day.
