WHO’S AFRAID OF A KISS? #pinkbits

A BITE OUT OF OUR PINK WORLD www.pinkinourlives.com

Gay-Rugby-Kiss-Scrumbacio-gay-3Popular Italian sports magazine Sportweek has put on their cover of the 11th of July edition a gay couple named Giacomo and Stefano kissing. They play together on gay-friendly amateur Rome squad Libera Rugby and were seen on the cover giving a good real kiss.

1461431_471788356268911_975606010_nThe gay kiss on the cover has unfortunately caused an outrage. Many readers of the magazine reacted like “That’s absolutely disgusting,” “You’re painfully conformist and ideological,” and arguably one of the most troubling comments:, “Tell me how I explain it to my 5 year old son.”

IMG_21931005315_417797711667976_828263826_nLuckily many, more liberal readers viewed the cover as a positive, long overdue challenge to the homophobia that often goes unchallenged in Italian sport. Many Italians are afraid and its fear and ignorance that create homophobia. But it is not only in Italy….Even in commercials two men kissing is still not done like the banned TV commercial in the USA in 2013, but it was CLEVER, HYSTERICAL & SEXY!! Here is the Jawbone blue tooth TV commercial. That’s a REAL rugby team + two actors Pete & Randy. Rugby team didn’t know about the KISS. The reactions what you see on their faces are REAL!!

Homosexuality remains an issue in the Catholic-majority nation. Italy is the only Western European country not to recognize either gay marriage or civil unions.
