Rome, July 10 - The Lower House's justice committee
has approved the text of a draft law which formally recognizes
for the first time homosexuality and raises penalties for
anti-gay provocations and hate crimes.
The House will start examining the bill on July 22.
The text approved by the justice committee late on Tuesday
provides for those found guilty of crimes against gays to be
given the same penalties as in racial discrimination cases - up
to four years in jail for violence and up to three years for
inciting violence or promoting sexual discrimination.
The text approved by the committee recognizes for the first
time in an Italian law the gay identity.
Sexual orientation, the draft law says, should be intended
as "the attraction towards a person of the same gender,
different gender or both genders".
Gender identity is also defined as "the perception a person
has of herself or himself as belonging to the female or male
gender, even if such perception is the opposite of the effective
biological gender".
