Bloggers Out 10 Homophobic Italian Politicians As Gay

Truth Wins Out points out that bloggers in Italy have published a list of 10 politicians who they allege are “gay, but homophobic.” As has been the case for such outings in the U.S., the LGBT community is divided over the tactic, but the bloggers have defended it as an effort to “bring a little justice” in a country where gay people have “no defense” against daily attacks and insults by “political hypocrites.” That accusing individuals of being gay is seen as such an attack speaks to how toxic the environment must be.
