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...

Eurovision 2021- EBU releases a press communication after useless and harmful speculations on Måneskin

Eurovision Song Contest 2021 crowned their winners last night with Måneskin taking the contest back to Italy, but the web is going mad and harmfully speculating over the use of drug by Damiano - singer of the band - during the Grand Final.     As we said in our previous article, during the Winner's press conference after the victory of Måneskin at Eurovision 2021, a Swedish person accredited as press - that we do not call journalist, because a real journalist would have never asked such a question -  asked the band if during the final of the competition, when the camera was filming them and saw Damiano bending towards the table for a few seconds, the lead singer was snorting cocaine.       The 2 seconds of video the haters went crazy about ca...

Eurovision 2021 – Måneskin wins and takes the contest back to Italy.

What an amazing night, this Grand Finale of Eurovision Song Contest 2021 with a so unexpected but wanted victory of the Italian Band Måneskin. It was looking almost impossible, given the high scores that Switzerland and France had reached by almost the end of the votes announcements... but Måneskin were finally able to bring the Eurovision Song Contest back to Italy after they last held it in 1990. This becomes the 3rd time that Italy wins Eurovision. https://youtu.be/msfdz_aksY8?t=13578 The performance started in such a great way, with the entire audience of the Ahoy Arena in Rotterdam, clapping and cheering for the band as if it was a real rock concert: Måneskin did deliver a great performance and showed that Italy rocks and can do it in such a great way. The band started playi...

Eurovision 2021 – Turquoise Carpet – The best 3 outfits of the day

Eurovision 2021 kicked off the most important week of the competition with the Turquoise Carpet in Rotterdam. TheGaylyMirror followed the ceremony and made a personal Top3 of the best outfits of the day. It has a been a very complicated start for the Competition Week of Eurovision 2021: the delegations from Iceland and Poland had someone of their teams who tested positive for Covid-19 and could attend the opening event. Due to the fact that the delegations of Romania and Malta are staying at the same hotel as the Polish team, as a precaution, they also could not attend the Turquoise Carpet. All the delegations will have to take PCR tests, and in case of negative results they will be allowed to participate live to each one's respective semifinal. But who had the best score for their ou...

Italian extreme-right wing Party blocking a proper law against homophobia

Lega Party and his leader, Matteo Salvini, are obstructing the discussion and the approval of the so called Zan bill, showing once again, how racist and homophobe they can be. The discussion of the Zan bill (that takes the name from the MP that first proposed it), has been stopped once again from Lega - the Italian extreme-right-party - because according to the leader, Matteo Salvini, "Italy does not need a new law regulating acts of homophobia, as laws in Italy already punish all acts of racism and hate and because this law is divisive and not foreseen by the government programme." This is what also, another fascist leader of the Italian Parliament - Giorgia Meloni - repeatedly affirms, adding also that if the Zan bill is approved, Italian citizens would loose every right to their...

Road To Eurovision: Italy, Portugal and San Marino’s Entries.

What a week for Eurovision Lovers like us! Three entries, three new songs, and 2 almost unexpected entries to the competition in Rotterdam. The very first big surprise was given to us by Sanremo 2021 - the Festival of Italian Song - that crowned Måneskin as the winners of this edition with their song "Zitti e Buoni". Since a few years now, this Italian selection also decides who will represent the country - that almost won ESC in 2019 with Soldi by Mahmoud - on the stage of Eurovision contest. Måneskin come almost as unexpected winners because of their music background which is rock, explicit and real and goes far from the classical pop, melodic song that Sanremo got all Italians used to.  This group will surely rock the stage in Rotterdam putting the audience to choose which rock t...

Italian Political Panorama gets enriched with a completely LGBT+ Party: Partito Gay

Italy is facing a big social revolution which has seen the approval of an Anti-Homophobia Act and the creation of a political party made of all LGBT+ representatives. The press conference to present this new party to the world, opens with a touching and still so real video of LGBT+ people around Italy that have suffered and still suffer from Homophobic attacks and offences. Some of them, as they tell us in the video, still receive today death threatens or get publicly offended and threatened on social media simply for being who they are. All these witnesses have been spontaneously submitted by LGBT+ people around Italy to a project called #LGBTLivesMatter (launched by Gay Center Roma) during the first lock-down due to Covid-19. Fabrizio Marrazzo famous Italian LGBT+ activist, founder...

Italy: the proposed law against homophobia could favour homophobes and not the LGBT+ people if the basic text is not changed.

Majority and opposition in full agreement to sanction the right to discriminate and be homophobic. From today, according to the recently modified text of the bill against homo-transphobia in Italy, you can insult any LGBT+ person and be homophobic, and still you would not be punished by law. Oh yeah! Because if "Italy is a country that does not discriminate!", then the flood of protests against the proposed law against homotransphobia that we are facing, and that are coming from the right parties, those extremist also the so called "Catholic-Fiscists", do not makes no sense. Among the first ones to contest the bill we find Matteo Salvini who continues in full denial style, to shift media's attention to something else, coming to sputtering absurd ideas as the one that there is no differen...

Italy: gay couple kicked out of a beach for a kiss.

Don't worry, we wouldn't be here talking about it if it happened between a boy and a girl. Versions of the facts - those from the manager of Fregene Navy Beach and from the two boys roughly sent away for a kiss - that will never match, but we didn't expect them to be so. The event was reported in a press release by Fabrizio Marrazzo, spokesman for the Gay Center Italy (which helps many cases of discrimination and violence every day), who made sure the incident got the attention of the media: "Last weekend in Fregene, Fiumicino, Rome, a couple of 20-year-old boys, while taking selfies and exchanging a kiss, at the Lido of the" Marina Militare "Fregene, were interrupted by a swimmer who threatened them to call the 'executive marshal  to have them kicked out the beach’; the boys repl...

Young gay couple brutally attacked in Milan (Italy)

Milan has always been a very gay-friendly city, but there are too many homophobic idiots around. The happening last night in Milan, in a quiet and warm evening in this city hardly  hit by Coronavirus. First the homophobic offenses, heavy, ugly, and then the beatings. The incident was promptly reported by the GayCenter of Rome - which operates at national level - and by their spokesperson, Mr. Fabrizio Marrazzo who said: "Last night in Milan a 20-year-old gay couple was insulted and attacked. The couple was eating on a bench in a park and a boy with a beard and tattoos on a scooter approached him and started to offend them with homophobic insults, to the boys' answers he punched S., which you see in the video, wounding him in the face.
