Further to my recent posts about equality and the role of women in Italian media, I believe it’s time to discuss briefly gay rights. This evening conservative MPs in the Tory government were under pressure to grant a Government bill in support of Gay Marriage (Ref). In fact, I’m quite surprised that this is still an issue since Marriage, in civil law  (in my opinion) should have no religious influence. Perhaps these discussions were necessary in government to straighten out the current laws (no pun intended) but these discussions and arguments are still no stranger to current British and Irish societies. Why do people still get passionate about the subject and is there still a need for Gay Pride celebrations? I suppose it depends where you live, as where I’m from, it is accepted and people make no differentiation or deal out of it!
