Rome, May 17 - Juridical protection for same-sex
couples in Italy is "disproportionate" to the level of
discrimination that homosexual pairs face, Senate Speaker Pietro
Grasso said on Friday.
"Parliament will have to learn how to effectively deal with
these social dynamics with clarity," Grasso, the country's
former national chief anti-Mafia prosecutor, said.
"The state must take action, not only for recognition, but
also for the protection of homosexuals' rights," Grasso said.
"It may be a politically controversial theme, but one with
which the institutions will have to deal," he said.
Grasso was speaking on the International Day Against
Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT), set up in 2004
to mark the day in 1990 when homosexuality was removed from the
International Classification of Diseases of the World Health
Organization (WHO).
