Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi claimed last week that he supports marriage equality, saying, “I’m in favor of granting legal status to couples who live together, including gays. If there is a majority that makes it possible to change the civil code.” LGBT groups are not impressed, however, pointing out that during his previous reign he “did nothing for LGBT people.” Berlusconi is vying for re-election while simultaneously facing trial for allegedly having sex with an underage prostitute. In 2010, he said, “It’s better to like pretty women than being gay.”
