Not Today Satan... Macron Annihilates Anti-Gay Le Pen For French Presidency
Macron is believed to have won the election taking 65.5 per cent of the vote, compared to the 34.5 per cent won by Le Pen.
A turnout of just 65.3 per cent of people was recorded at five o’clock in the evening, an hour before the polls closed.
Macron is a staunch supporter of LGBT rights and equality, having dedicated an entire section of his manifesto to addressing issues that the LGBT community faces.
The newly elected president, who is the youngest president to ever be elected in France, has pledged to end everyday homophobia as well as work place anti-LGBT discrimination.
He has also promised to defend equal marriage, a legislation that Macron has deemed “an enrichment of what the family is in France that shows its importance to all of us”.
His anti-LGBT opponent, Le Pen, had promised to abolish the law that created marriage equality in the country, burying the policy in a manifesto of 144 pledges.
She also outlined plans to restrict access to fertility services and prevent gay couples from having children.
