It could be a long time before same-sex nuptials are magnifico in Italy, but LGBT nonprofit Arcigay has launched “Ti sposerò” (“I’ll Marry You”), a cute and sexy video promoting marriage equality in the European country.
In the video, two gay men are seen sharing their lives, joining in a rally and, eventually, tying the knot. At their wedding reception, a pair of lesbians gets engaged. (Don’t you hate it when your friends upstage you?)
Legislation legalizing civil unions has been introduced into the Italian Parliament several times, but the highly Catholic nation doesn’t currently legally recognize same-sex relationships in any way. Pope Benedict XVI, who sits pretty in Rome, has called gay marriage “a threat to the future of humanity itself.” Of course, he’s not exactly an expert on marriage. (Or humanity, for that matter.)
By the by, if you’re digging the song in the video, it’s by Lorenzo Jovanotti Cherubini and it’s also called “”I’ll Marry You.”
