Raffaella Carrà: why was she so loved by the LGBT+ people?

Raffaella Carrà the Italian and International Gay Icon who never understood why she was so loved by the LGBT+ people. In one of her interviews she once admitted that she really did not understand why she became such a powerful and loved Gay Icon. Raffaella, died yesterday at the age of 78, since the very first appearance on tv, with a natural simplicity, was able to wreck tabus, to sing of sexual freedom, female empowerment, independence and, of gay loves, with a big smile on her face. https://www.instagram.com/p/CQ8_q5SBTM-/ Raffaella Carrà, back in 1978, on Rai1 - the equivalent of BBC1 in Italy - sang "Luca". This was a song about her love for this beautiful and stunning guy, who all of a sudden, she lost contacts with. One day - as she tells us in the song - she saw him from ...

Raffaella Carrà dies at the age of 78 – one fo the first international Italian Gay Icon  Her final goodbye

Raffaella Carrà - the international LGBT+ community has just lost one of her most loved queens. Aged 78, the most iconic International Italian Showgirl and LGBTQI supporter, left this world today 5th July 2021 4.20 pm. Her friend and ex-partner, Sergio Iapino, announced her death that arrived after a long illness that attacked her “small but always strong body” (as Iapino said). The news arrived unexpected and shocked the international showbiz panorama, leaving too many colleagues, artists and normal people in tears. A woman out of the ordinary yet endowed with unsettling simplicity, she had no children but as she always said, she had thousands of them, like the 150 thousand she helped to adopted thanks to “Amore”, an international adoption programme she sustained along her life.  http...

Jack Dunne – Irish Pro-Rugby player – publicly comes out as bisexual

Rugby has always been a very inclusive sport, one of the most open-minded team-sports, and a new player - Jack Dunne - comes out publicly about his sexuality. The player for Irish team Leinster discussed his sexuality in a recent Pride-themed webinar for his team's YouTube page, and speaking to TV presenter Craig Doyle, 22-year-old Jack said he's actually been "out as bisexual for four or five years now - but not out in the media." https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=-6coYqePYHQ&feature=emb_logo In a following interview with the Independent.ie he added: "I kind of realised when I was 15 or 16, but you are in a school full of teenage boys. [...] A lot of them would say things that they wouldn't even be thinking about, but they are just doing it out of ignorance....

Måneskin on top of the world and fighting against Homophobia in Poland

Måneskin is absolutely the strongest music band of the moment, and these Italians really do it better than others ... or at least, when it comes to fight prejudice and homophobia. Damiano David and Thomas Raggi have kissed on stage in Poland in protest of rising levels of homophobia in the country, especially after all the LGBT Free Zones were created. The Italian Rock Band, who won Eurovision Song Contest 2021 against all odds, started a European tour that has seen each date to be quickly sold out, and during their concert in Poland, they launched a serious message of love, acceptance and togetherness. On their IG profile they posted the below video: https://www.instagram.com/p/CQmLgfQISg6/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link   And yes, Damiano, you are perfectly right: LOVE ...

Xavier Bettle – Luxembourg PM – publicly attacks Orban’s anti-LGBT+ bill.

Xavier Bettle is openly gay and married to his husband, with which he committed to keep on fighting for LGBT+ rights around the world. As we said here, yesterday Orban and Hungary received an open letter where the EU leaders jointly expressed their solidarity with the LGBT+ community and continued dedication to “fighting against discrimination”. You can see a copy of the letter here below:   “Respect and tolerance are at the core of the European project […] We are committed to carry on with this effort, making sure that future European generations grow up in an atmosphere of equality and respect.” And of course this is what Xavier Bettle wants to pursue for our present and future. Speaking to reporters he said: “Being gay is not a choice. […] You know, I did not just wak...

Vatican VS Italy for LGBT+ rights

The State of Vatican has just started a sort of diplomatic war against Italy while the Italian Parliament gets ready to discuss a law against Homophobia. If Italy is a very socially advanced country where finally same-sex unions are granted by the legislation and have almost same rights as a heterosexual marriage, surely it is still not a country where the LGBT+ population is fully protected against discrimination and abuse We have already spoken here about the Zan Bill Proposal (aka DDL Zan) and that still, after more than year since the PM Alessandro Zan proposed this bill, and after the thousands of revisions that the entire bill received from the right and conservative opposition, the Italian Parliament was almost ready to start the final discussion in order to approve and pass the...

Carl Nassib comes out as Gay

Carl Nassib is the first NFL player to publicly come out as gay making history. Carl Nassib, this hot dude in the video below, came out as gay in an Instagram video he shared last Monday afternoon, becoming the first active gay player in National Football League history to come out while signed to a team. https://www.instagram.com/p/CQZXu_8nyy_/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link His message is clear, direct and open-hearted: "I’m at my house in West Chester, Pennsylvania. I just wanted to take a quick moment to say that I’m gay. I’ve been meaning to do this for a while now but finally feel comfortable getting it off my chest. I really have the best life, the best family, friends and job a guy can ask for. I’m a pretty private person so I hope you guys know that I’m not doing this for a...

Happy Pride Month 2021

Happy Pride Month 2021 - we are to celebrate life, diversity, love and inclusion. This past couple of years have been very complicated for the whole world, for sure, but for the LGBT+ community, things have been even worst - sometimes. This pandemic forced people to live together in narrow spaces: too often LGBT+ people had to live in hostile environments and their lives, their mental health were put in serious risk. June is the month when we celebrate Pride globally: we also celebrate life, inclusion, we scream out loud our right to exist, to live and love, to have a decent life and get our rights recognised. June is generally the month when we start marching our Pride Parades, or at least we used to, before Covid-19 messed up with our lives.  I would therefore love to begin this mon...

Eurovision 2021 – Måneskin case is finally closed!

EBU finally put and end to the case of alleged drug use at Eurovision Song Contest 2021 by Damiano of Måneskin. The press release is clear and leaves no doubt: No drug use took place! We fully report it here: "Following allegations of drug use in the Green Room of the Eurovision Song Contest Grand Final on Saturday 22 May, the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), as requested by the Italian delegation, has conducted a thorough review of the facts, including checking all available footage. A drug test was also voluntarily undertaken earlier today by the lead singer of the band Måneskin which has returned a negative result seen by the EBU. No drug use took place in the Green Room and we consider the matter closed. We are alarmed that inaccurate speculation leading to fake news has...

Eurovision 2021 – Måneskin are back in Italy and today they will be taking a drug test.

The band that won Eurovision 2021, landed in Rome yesterday and quickly communicated the they are all going to get tested for drugs today 24th May 2021. This is what the lead-singer, Damiano David, communicated via social networks to all their fans and to those who followed them during Eurovision Song Contest 2021, for them to stop all those speculations saying that he used drugs during the live Grand Final of the competition. This drug test, and a negative result, could finally stop the case of allegations launched by the Swedish press-accredited-person in the Press Room during the Winner’s press conference after the grand final of the Eurovision 2021, and from the newspaper Paris Match, on the possible use of drugs by Damiano David.  EBU released a press note a few hours later...
