A single gay studies course at the University Of Milan is being billed as Italy’s first such opportunity for students in the heavily Roman Catholic country. The Associated Press frames news of the course as a fight against homophobia on college campuses and society at large. (Student Giacomo Moro, pictured here, was gay bashed on campus while hanging a flyer for a gay association event.) Which is sort of is! But also: Does everything about gay life have to be about our community being attacked and marginalized? Oh, right.
