Lgbt, vice president of the Fdi circle: “I am homosexual but I defend Malan”

The words of Klevis Gjoka, openly homosexual and vice president of the “Pirandello” Club in Milan: “I know other homosexual exponents, no discrimination”

“I am homosexual, from Fratelli d’Italia, but I defend Lucio Malan”. There is a storm over the Fdi group leader in the Senate due to his statements on same-sex marriages made on the radio show ‘A sheep’s day’, where the exponent of Giorgia Meloni’s party reiterated his no to LGBT weddings, recalling that in the Bible “it is written that homosexuality is an abomination, both in the Old and in the New Testament”. But after the harsh criticisms coming from the opposition (Pd in ​​primis) against Malan, a voice is raised in the Brothers of Italy in support of the senator. And it is that of Klevis Gjoka, declared homosexual and vice president of the “Pirandello” club of Fratelli d’Italia in Milan. “I don’t think Senator Malan has any reason to apologise”, says Gjoka, interviewed by Adnkronos. For the young Fdi militant, the Melonian group leader “did not offend anyone’s sensitivity by reiterating a sacrosanct concept, namely that the institution of marriage was born as a religious institution and has therefore always been heterosexual by definition”. “This – he points out – does not mean that homosexual couples should have or have less rights before the law”.

As an openly gay man, what do you think of egalitarian marriage? “I simply believe that there is a difference between culture and law. It is not possible to say that marriage as a religious concept is ‘openable’ to homosexual couples, it would be demeaning for the religious tradition and for the faith itself”, replies the vice president of the Club ” Pirandello” by Fdi. How numerous is the LGBT community in Fratelli d’Italia? “I could not give a quantification, in all honesty, but there is no discrimination of any kind linked to sexuality or other innate characteristics in the Brothers of Italy. What counts for us are the values ​​and the commitment that the militant or the exponent brings within our community and puts it at the service of the territory and the nation. I personally know some local homosexual exponents”, concludes Gjoka.
