Protests are mounting against a gay pride festival in the Italian city of Vicenza.
The city of Vicenza in Italy is going to host Veneto Pride 2013, but protests against the celebrations are mounting.
Local politicians are criticizing the choice of the city as host of Veneto Pride and a poll revealed that almost half of the metropolis is against the LGBT event on 15 June, 2013.
Regional Education secretary, Elena Donazzon, said: ‘The pride will be ridiculous and vulgar. I have a lot of gay friends but all of them are against this kind of thing.’
