Italian Court Recognized LGBT Families

Italy didn't pass gay marriage. Admittedly, it is a defeat but also a victory because, for the first time, the Italian Court recognized the existence of gay and lesbian families.

The Court said gay and lesbian couples could not marry but they have to have rights and to be recognized as a family and identical to straight couples, with the same rights as married opposite-sex couples.

It is the first time that the higher authority in Italy is in favor of the LGBT community even if it refused the gay marriage.

"This sentence is very important," Fabrizio Marrazzo, the spokesperson of the Gay center, a group of LGBT organizations in Rome, said, "It grants a reality to gay and lesbian couples, it establishes that the law must ensure the same rights".
