Just hours after French President Francois Hollande signed a gay marriage bill into law, two men announced they would go first.

The men, Vincent and Bruno, announced their May 29 wedding in Montpellier, which is located on the south coast of France on the Mediterranean Sea.

“Vincent and Bruno are making their preparations and so are we,” said Montpellier Mayor Helene Mandroux. “At the Montepellier Town Hall we are getting ready for the big day.”

She continued, “I would say it's the evolution of society. Personally, I think that when society evolves in a certain way, meaning the same rights for everyone, that's an excellent development.”

Hollande signed the legislation on Saturday, a day after the Constitutional Council threw out a legal challenge by conservative UMP deputies.

“It means that we can love one another, we can look after our children, and there will be many other weddings, thousands of weddings in the days and months to come,” said Vincent, president of an LGBT rights group. “That's the most beautiful symbol of a France that is more fair since this morning.”
