Bohemian Rhapsody Zoom In 2

Gay Paree
Photograph by William Albert Allard

Beneath the towering buttresses of the Church of St. Gervais-St. Protais, Pascal Heron (right) and Ali Randalls dine en plein air at ritzy Chez Julien. Like many same-sex couples, they joined a recent migration to the open, tolerant environment of the Marais. With hundreds of gay nightspots and businesses, including a bakery, the district has become the heart of Paris's gay community.
