In Martinique, human rights defenders quickly protested against a local television station that broadcast a sidewalk interview containing LGBTphobic conspiracy theories related to France’s April 24 presidential election. On March 22, Kanal Martinique Télévision (KMT) broadcast interviews about the then upcoming presidential elections, including references to persistent rumors and conspiracy theories about President Emmanuel Macron, who went on to win re-election on April 24. The rumors question Macron’s sexual orientation, aiming to undercut his ability to lead the country. Similarly transphobic rumors allege that his wife, Brigitte Macron, is actually an older trans woman.
