Six LGBTI rights activists have been charged with disturbing the peace because they kissed at an anti-gay protest in March.
The public prosecutor’s office notified the six of the charges earlier this month.
The three men and three women held a spontaneous, uncoordinated protest against an anti-gay group Sentinelle in Piedi, Standing Sentries, in Perugia, central Italy.
The Sentinelle stage demonstrations against gay marriage and efforts to extend hate crime protections to LGBTI people. Members stand silently in plazas, holding books or praying.
