Two French Olympic swimmers have posed as a gay couple for an anti-homophobia campaign, as tensions remain fraught following the passage of marriage and adoption equality laws. Gold medal winner Florent Manadou and word record holder Frédérick Bousquet have posed for a campaign called ‘imaginary couples’ which was started by photographer Olivier Ciappa: In real life, Bousquet is in a relationship with Manadou’s sister Laure. Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria and Belgian-Italian singer Lara Fabian have also posed as a couple for the campaign. You can see more pictures here
