Homosexuality Deserves "Legal Protection"

Italy Stays Gay Sengalese Man’s Deportation

A Senegalese man got his non-denominational holiday wish!

The Italian high court overruled a lower court’s deportation order:

[The court] has ruled that a gay illegal immigrant from Senegal can remain in Italy for now, and ordered a judge to examine the man’s claim that he faces persecution in Senegal based on his sexual orientation.

The new ruling said “homosexuality is a condition of the human being deserving legal protection” and “sexual freedom must be construed as freedom to live without interference and restrictions with reference to sexual preferences.”

How long until the right wing launches a crusade against the “protective” judiciary?

    Good to hear! There’s similar case here in Toronto about a man from Latin America whose refugee claim is being reviewed. He was to be deported but his lawyer managed to overturn the decision in his favor.
