Dr Ruggero Freddi, a maths professor at Rome’s prestigious La Sapienza University, made headlines recently as his students discovered that he had been a gay porn actor. The controversial past was not an obstacle for him to keep his current job and the man says he is not ashamed of who he used to be, and neither are his parents, friends and colleagues. And even though Italy has rather poor LGBT right records due to strong Catholic influence, students have always known that their professor was gay and they were completely okay with it. University bosses, though, had some more reluctance. The university cancelled a World AIDS Day conference he was arranging on the subject of HIV and Aids, but the students stood up for him and his initiative. As for porn career, he considered himself an entertainer and his job – a temporary method to earn money before becoming who he always wanted to be. He knew that his past would be revealed one day but he could not expect such a popularity.
