Rainbow family controversy in Italy slowly turning into full-blown EU dispute

A domestic Italian clash could soon become a European problem, with mayors of Italian cities being prevented from registering foreign birth certificates when presented by same-sex couples. The mayor of Milan Beppe Sala travelled to Brussels on Wednesday to ask for support in his fight for the rights of the LGBT community, the same day as a debate by MEPs in the European Parliament on the topic that is starting to make its way into EU politics. Sala told Euronews that children’s rights come first. “Me and some other Italian mayors are fighting this battle because we know this is the law, but at the same time our citizens are asking us to make these registrations to give the rights to their children,” he said in an interview. “And the reason for which I am here, is that the European Court of Human Rights said very clearly that the rights of the children come first place. Italian legislation is not listening to this.”
