«Refusing to make hate crimes against LGBTQ+ people illegal means clearing the way for violence against queer and trans people, abandoning the community with no governmental support.

If Meloni were to win, it would mean that queer and trans couples will continue in not having the right to adopt a child and build their own family. According to the Brothers of Italy, a child should ‘have the right to a father and a mother’, ergo by their view, letting queer as well as gender diverse people adopt would subject the child to a lesser quality of life.» https://www.gendergp.com/the-future-of-trans-and-non-binary-people-in-italy/

Norway’s parliament outlawed hate speech against transgender people back in 2020, expanding a law that had protected gay and lesbian people since 1981. Now the Norwegian Supreme Court has confirmed that it takes this part of the law seriously.

The hate crime law now also covers “trans persons and others who have a gender identity or a gender expression that contradicts the expectations found in their environment.”
