Italian Players Union president Damiano Tommasi tells footballers to stay in the closet: “It’s to be discouraged. The fact of being identified or singled out as ‘the one who is’, regardless of your profession, whether journalist, footballer or politician, I don’t think it would be an advisable path to take.

In our world it could cause embarrassment."

Why must it be categorically dismissed as not a marriage on factors irrelevant to its individual nature, success or social usefulness? Religious organisations may feel threatened, their sacraments diluted But just like they should not be able to determine the divorce laws of members of another religion or denomination why should they determine the rules that govern the relationships between gay couples, of another religion, or none at all?"
