Italian Bill

Italian Bill

Popstar Lady Gaga has said that the failed bill in Italy, which would have made violence towards LGBTQ people and women a hate crime, is a total disaster. Her hit song, “Born this way”, is an LGBTQ anthem. Lady Gaga had said that “I just want to say something for the LGBTQ+ community in Italy- that you are the bravest, you are the kindest, you are an inspiration. For this to happen is a total disaster”. She says that they deserve to be treated like human beings and they deserve to be protected at all costs. The bill is known as the “Zan bill”, named for Alessandro Zan, a gay lawmaker of the center-left Democratic Party.
