Italy's first openly lesbian MP marries
Paola Concia first Italian politician to wed someone of same sex05 August, 16:09
"Unlike others I want to get married," Concia announced on Italian radio last year. "And we must work in parliament to win rights equivalent to marriage in Italy too".
Concia came out in 2002 after working for the PD for several years.
She became an MP in 2008 and has become a prominent activist for equal rights for gays and hate-crime laws against gay-bashing.
A draft law on gay hate crimes was defeated last week, sparking an outcry from Italy's gay community.
