Italy approves civil unions for homosexuals

gay-pride-flag“Gay” activists won a huge concession in Italy as parliamentary leaders, following a fiercely contested legislative fight that lasted years, gave their thumbs-up to a measure allowing civil unions for homosexuals.

Prime Minister Matteo Renzi called a conference to press the final bill into law, bringing an end to Italy’s status as the last major country in the West to refuse to legally recognize “gay” unions, Reuters reported.  Source
