Undercover reporters on The Hyena claimed in the new documentary that the governmental money was spent on gay sex venues. The investigation claimed that the National Office against Racial Discrimination (UNAR) authorised 55,000 euros to go to three clubs, which were believed to be gay sex venues according to the documentary.

ANDDOS, the National Association Against Sexual Discrimination, runs hundreds of gay venues across Italy, including the three featured in the documentary. The documentary aired explicit footage of sex workers offering their services in the venues, as well as men going into ‘dark rooms’ for intimacy. Francesco Spano, head of Italy’s anti-discrimination department, has resigned following the documentary. He was believed to have attended such venues. He told the local press that he resigned not because of feeling guilty or ashamed of something.

Anti-gay opposition leaders have used the TV report to call for the anti-discrimination department to be completely shut down. Giorgia Meloni, leader of far-right party Brothers of Italy, said: “Not one more euro of tax payers’ money should be thrown away on paying their salaries,” she wrote on her Facebook page. LGBT association GayLib warned against knee-jerk reactions, saying UNAR helped tackle homophobia.
