Italian lawmakers stage same-sex ‘kiss-in’ to support gay rights

Members of Italy’s Parliament staged a “kiss-in” to show their support for an anti-discrimination bill being debated Thursday on behalf of gays.

The bill passed 354-79, according to the English-written Italian newspaper, The Local, which also reported:

The parliamentary debate was interrupted when dozens of M5S politicians stood in unison and began kissing and hugging each other. Fellow politicians from Beppe Grillo’s party held signs that called for “more rights” for gay people.

Member of Parliament Federica Daca took the following photo of the event and tweeted it to her followers:

That, according to, means, “Equal rights and dignity without distinction of gender because a kiss and an embrace should not cause fear.”

Somehow, I just can’t picture U.S. Reps. John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Harry Waxman, D-Calif., engaging in this activity without someone getting his lights punched out. I can’t even see Boehner and U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., kissing and embracing — but maybe that’s just me.

At any rate, la dolce vita!
