Italian newspaper Libero has sparked controversy publishing a headline seemingly correlating economic decline with an increased number of gay people. The headline, published on the front page of the daily newspaper on Wednesday (January 23), reads: “Not much to be happy about. Revenue and GDP down, but gay people increase.” The summary below the headline further established the bizarre link between business conditions in Italy and data on people’s sexual orientation.
