Italy’s gay center is damaged by burglars


Italy’s LGBT+ association Gay Center was targeted by burglars who stole donations and goods. The sum of damages counts more than 10 thousand Euros. The association, which provides services to LGBT+ people such as a hotline to report homophobic attacks, said their offices were broken at night on January 24th. The Gay Center denounced the burglary in a post to its Facebook page, sharing pictures of the state of the headquarters. The incident has already been reported to the police. Gay Center spokesperson Fabrizio Marrazzo started a crowdfunding page to make the center recover from the harm. Fellow LGBT+ advocates are among those who contributed. Francesco Angeli, the president of the Rome branch of the ArciGay LGBT+ group, who works together with the Gay Center on several projects, wrote in a statement on Facebook that the burglary won’t stop the activists from doing their job.
