The Italian Parliament’s lower house broke out in a kiss-in on Thursday in the midst of debate over an LGBT rights bill.

Members of an Italian political party staged a kiss-in protesting the strength of a proposal to update the national hate crimes law with language to protect LGBT people.
The measure would expand the 20-year-old law to heavily prosecute crimes based on homophobia or transphobia. However members of the M5S or MoVimento 5 Stelle, staged a same-sex kiss-in, while other members held up signs urging “more rights”.
The bill passed in the lower house Thursday, 354-79, but it is not expected to easily pass the Senate, where members of President Silvio Berlusconi’s People of Freedom party have already promised that the bill would fall because it restricts freedom of speech.

This is amazing folks. You can also read more here.
