MILAN, Aug 3 (Reuters) – The city of Milan will resume registering children born abroad from male couples, its mayor said on Thursday, after challenging curbs imposed by the right-wing national government. The government took action in January to stop local authorities from registering the children of same-sex parents, in a move that has sparked protests from LGBT+ activists concerned about the conservative agenda of Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni. No longer able to register children born abroad to couples of two men, the city of Milan turned to the interior ministry asking if it could at least register the newborns under their biological father. It received a green light on Thursday. There was no immediate comment from the interior ministry on the move, which could provide a template for other Italian cities. Milan’s centre-left mayor Giuseppe Sala hailed the decision as a “step forward” in a post on social media.
