Italy: Regime limits parental rights of gay couples

Source: St. Albert Gazette [Canada]

“Gay rights activists on Tuesday denounced as homophobic moves by Italian Premier Giorgia Meloni’s far-right-led government to limit recognition of parental rights to the biological parent only in families with same-sex parents. The city of Milan has been told to stop officially recording both parents in same-sex couples on city registers. … News of the move, which had been communicated to Milan Mayor Giuseppe Sala by the state-appointed prefect, came on the same day that a Senate commission blocked an attempt to recognize birth certificates of the children of same sex couples issued by other EU states.” (03/14/23)
