663 Views

A number of organisations across Italy this year helped mark IDAHOT 2016 with events, actions and campaigns all held to celebrate the day.
National LGBT group Arcigay held a number of events across the county. In Palmero a lecture was held at the City University on discrimination in the LGBT community. In Vincenza, the local branch held a public event aimed at addressing discrimination, stigma and marginalisation.

The group also used the day to launch its annual report on LGBT-phobias. The report highlights the difficult situation facing the Italian LGBT community, largely caused by the mixed legislation that allows same-sex marriage but fails to provide adequate protection against discrimination and hate crimes.
Italian Christians also marked the day, for the tenth consecutive year, with a number of vigils and public worships held in sites across the country.
