Welcome and enjoy your visit to the new, free photo exhibition dedicated to the LGBTQIA+ memory.

"Mémoire de Luttes: opening up marriage and adoption to same-sex couples"

webp-Affiche Mémoire de Luttes-maj-23-05-23.webp

"Mémoire de luttes: l'ouverture du mariage et de l'adoption aux personnes de même sexe" is a free audio-visual photographic exhibition by Didier Reynaud, photographer and founder of Conseil Équitable. 

This unique exhibition retraces the months leading up to the vote on the French Marriage for All Act in April 2013. This law in favour of LGBTQIA+ equality has left its mark on our minds and symbolises a major step forward. However, it should not obscure the fact that since then, homophobia, transphobia and biphobia have continued to grow dramatically.


The exhibition consists of around thirty photos, each with a description and anecdotes. You can also listen to audio commentaries to immerse yourself in the atmosphere of this very special year.

The commentaries are at once poetic, militant and historical. You'll also find extracts from speeches and testimonials from people who lived through that year. All set against a backdrop of carefully chosen classical music.

You'll have the chance to listen to the stories of our guests. Erwann Binet, then rapporteur for the law opening marriage and adoption to same-sex couples in 2013. Olivier Faure, current First Secretary of the French Socialist Party and then a young Member of Parliament; Louis-Georges Tin, founder of the World Day against LGBTQIphobia; Dugudus, an artist and activist, and other witnesses to this struggle.

Aims of the exhibition

The exhibition has four main objectives:

  1. To pass on our memory through an innovative and free format.

  2. To make culture accessible to as many people as possible and to decentralise it.

  3. To combat homophobia, transphobia and biphobia in a poetic and committed way.

  4. Setting an example: as with all its projects, the Conseil Équitable agency strives to set an example. As far as possible, the exhibition has been built in an eco-responsible way. A carbon offset programme is being set up and the exhibition's souvenirs are eco-responsible. We are also working on a podcast project to include everyone.


Finally, you can support the exhibition in a number of ways:

  • Share the exhibition and tell others about it! See our toolbox at the bottom of the page!

  • Contribute to our online kitty, or buy eco-responsible souvenirs of the exhibition or give them as gifts, unless you'd prefer a signed and authenticated photo. These are unique, limited-edition, historic gifts.

  • You can also print the official poster and distribute it in your favourite bars and restaurants, at your town hall or in other cultural venues to make culture accessible and contribute to the success of this project. 

  • You can also sign the guest book by clicking on our Contact page.


The exhibition is being produced with the support of 9 committed partners from the LGBTQIA+ world, as well as from the ecological world, which you can find out more about on the page dedicated to them. You can become a partner in less than 5 minutes, just fill in the form on the dedicated page.
