Stéphane Bern raises an incredible amount of feedback since the last issue of Paris Match which he made with his friend, Lionel. And for good reason, this is only the second time in nearly twenty years that the weekly shows a gay couple on its cover.

Stéphane Bern has formalized its new relationship. In a relationship with Lionel for almost a year, the friend of the stars has chosen the one of Paris Match , to reveal the face of his companion and deliver a few details of their intimacy. An initiative that earned him a rain of applause from the web users and a few personalities such as Marc-Olivier Fogiel.
