The Anti-LGBTQ+ Views of Italy’s Likely New Leader, Giorgia Meloni

LGBTQ+ Italians are concerned about the views of the country’s presumptive new prime minister, Giorgia Meloni. Meloni is leader of the Fratelli d’Italia (Brothers of Italy), a right-wing party that is forming a coalition government with two other conservative parties, League and Forza Italia, that appear to have won a majority of seats in Italy’s Parliament. Voting results will likely be final by Monday. If all goes as expected, she will be the nation’s first woman leader and head its most conservative government since World War II. However, she has “played down her party’s post-fascist roots and portrays it as a mainstream group like Britain’s Conservatives,” according to Openly, the Thomson Reuters Foundation’s LGBTQ+ news site.
