An Italian anti-LGBTQ+ political party has been ordered to pay the equivalent of $10,000 U.S. to a gay Canadian couple after it used a photo of their family in a campaign against surrogacy. In 2014, an emotional photo went viral that captured the moment Frank Nelson and BJ Barone met their newborn son, Milo. Taken by Lindsay Foster, it appears to have taken place seconds after Milo was born. The two men embrace both each other and the baby with looks of intense love and devotion on their faces. Two years later, the Brothers of Italy party (Fratelli d’Italia) used the photo in an anti-surrogacy campaign. The ad declares: “He can never say Mom. The rights that need to be defended are those of the child.”
