Italian government limits parental rights of gay couples

Gay rights activists on Tuesday denounced as homophobic moves by Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni’s far-right-led government to limit recognition of parental rights to the biological parent only in the case of same-sex couples. The city of Milan has been told to stop officially recording both parents in same-sex couples on city registers. It was the last major city to continue the practice that had been briefly adopted in Rome, Turin, Naples and elsewhere after Italy’s high court in 2016 made it easier for gay people to adopt a partner’s biological child. The piece of bureaucracy is key to recognizing parental rights for a variety of everyday situations, including authorizing medical treatment and participating in class outings.
