Berlusconi in Anti Gay Hate Campaign

Italian Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi might be better known for grabbing the media headlines for his gaffs, corruption rumours and so on but has also demonstrated that he does do a bit of governing on the side. The Guardian reported yesterday that:

'As tens of thousands of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Italians prepared to demonstrate tomorrow against a string of homophobic attacks, Silvio Berlusconi's government announced a ground-breaking €2m media campaign against discrimination.

After meeting representatives of more than 20 gay rights associations, the equal opportunities minister, Mara Carfagna, said Italy's rightwing government would make "an unprecedented commitment to get across our message". The money would pay for TV commercials, newspaper advertisements and posters to be put up on hoardings and in buses and trains'.
