The Italian magazine Sportweek made history this week by featuring a real-life gay rugby couple kissing on its cover. The couple, Giacomo and Stefano, are players on Free Rugby Roma, the first gay-friendly rugby team in Italy.
The photograph was taken on June 13 at Milan’s Civic Arena at the Legends of Rugby event.
A simple cover line accompanies the article: Who’s Afraid of a Kiss?
The cover is already inspiring fierce debate on social media:
