Gay mafia hitman murdered by his own cousin because of his sexuality


The murder of a gay hitman by his own cousin in 2002 has emerged shortly after it was announced that the Mafia accepts gay men from now on. The murder was revealed by Andrea Mantella, a former mobster who became a valuable source of information for Italian authorities. In the course of a recent investigation he admitted responsibility for the death of his cousin Filippo Gangitano, who lived with a male partner, which the mafia bosses called a disgrace and an unacceptable behavior. La Republicca reports that Mantella told investigators: “I tried to resolve the situation by having him chased away, but both of them told me that these things must not exist… we could not afford to have or have had a gay man in the gang.”
