Italian pamphlets are telling patients: ‘Beware the gay dentist’

An Italian dentist is the victim of a leaflet campaign, informing his patients to be wary of him because he is gay.

Alessandro Bordoni, a gay rights activist based in Tuscany, has said they do not know who made up the ‘health warning’ notices but they plan on finding out.

‘Notice to patients,’ reads one of the leaflets, ‘a gay dentist works here, you are kindly asked to be careful and take the due precautions’.

The leaflet, which named the dentist (which we will not do), begged patients to ‘take the necessary precautions so as to protect their health’.

While it doesn’t contain any contact information or even who wrote it, it is signed by a self-styled group working for the ‘protection of patients against illnesses contracted in dentists’ enviroments.’

Bordoni told ANSA: ‘We will hunt those responsible and take legal action.’
