Ariete, young singer-songwriter and composer from Anzio (born Arianna Del Giaccio), was a guest on the Tuesday 7 March episode of the program Hyenas on Italy 1.

In the usual monologue offered by the guests of the Mediaset show, the musician spoke for the members of the LGBTQ+ community who have been, are and unfortunately will continue to be (if things do not change) victims of bullying and violence connected to homophobia and discrimination sexual. In addition to the well-known stories – such as the many tragic recent cases of violence suffered which Aries spoke about in detail, as we will see later – “there are the many who suffer in silence”, said the singer. “And I want to speak for them. Let their voice emerge.”

His monologue was an excellent example of a service intervention, an important social message that invites us to denounce violence. Not only edifying words but also practical advice, complete with names of associations that offer immediate and free help to all members of the Lgbtq+ community who find themselves victims of discrimination. In addition to naming one of the associations that fight to help those who are discriminated against, verbally and/or physically offended and abused in any way, Ariete also offered everyone the telephone number that they can just call to receive immediate assistance. “Just a phone call to 800713713”, so he concluded his monologue to Hyenas, giving practical support to all members of the community to which she belongs. Aries is openly bisexual. In her songs she tells of her love for women, also doing activism on social networks as well as during her concerts.

Many people who are “silent”. For them speaks Aries

After telling CosmoIAM about the beauty of being “happy with yourself, the basic foundation on which you can build everything you want in life”, Aries has become even more a champion of the rights of the LGBTQ+ community. She has become one with these her new, important, touching and profound words offered to the public de Hyenas.

The 21-year-old artist, best known for songs like Sea of ​​trouble, has chosen to speak up for the submerged stories of people who are harassed, abused, violated and even killed because of their sexual and gender identity. He has chosen to mention the names, dates and even the places that have been scenes of violence, in a real memorial of victims, of those who have fallen due to the great ignorance that grips this world. Yes, because only ignorance can generate non-acceptance of the other.

Aries: “I want to tell you about the stark reality behind the LGBTQ+ community”

Below we report in full the monologue of Aries a Hyenas.

“But don’t you feel the responsibility? This is the question they ask me the most. They want to know if I feel like a spokesperson for something. As a happy, loved, free 20-year-old girl, I’ve always stood there, with my tail between my legs, looking for an answer. Can I really be the spokesperson for something, leave an important imprint? Today I try and I want to talk to you about the stark reality behind the LGBTQ+ community beyond the social media and awareness bubble. The reality of a transsexual boy or a homosexual girl who feel the weight of those who don’t accept them every day, of the scars kept hidden. The reality of those who, unfortunately, are no longer there. February 2023, in Frosinone a twenty-year-old lesbian is overwhelmed by spits, slaps and insults from her mother. ‘I’d rather have a dead daughter,’ she tells her. October 2022, in the province of Como, a 22-year-old waiter is threatened with homophobic expressions, chased, beaten to death and ends up hospitalized with head trauma and multiple trauma. As late as October 2022, 47-year-old trans woman Naomi Cabral is found dead in a hotel room. Also October 2022, for the third time in the same month, Chiara, a 19-year-old transgender girl, commits suicide in Naples after suffering episodes of violence, bullying and marginalization. These are just some of the stories that have emerged, then there are those who suffer in silence. And I want to speak for them. Bring out their voice. Don’t wait to ask for help. There are associations like Gay Help Line that can offer you free help right away. Just a phone call to 800713713. But don’t you feel the responsibility? Yes, I feel it, for the right things, for the real things, for Naomi, Chiara and who knows how many others, for human beings, never to forget them”.
