Rome, May 19, 2022 – Thehomosexuality as a fault. So “now you die”, because “we don’t want rich in our family”. These are the words shouted at a sixteen year old calabrese from the uncle before she started brutally beating him. The attack, which took place in Cosentino, cost the boy 4 broken ribs, deviated nasal septum and other various injuries.
To denounce the episode in a post on Facebook is Silvio Cilento, president of the Arci di Cosenza and Secretary Eos Arcigay Cosenza, underlining that everything occurred on the international day against homophobia, biphobia and transphobia. “On May 17 – the post reads – the sixteen year old decided to tie a rainbow bandana on his backpack and go out with his friends. On the way he is stopped by the paternal uncle (advised by father). The uncle parks the car, approaches and tells him: ‘We don’t want riches in our family’ and gives him a first slap, which then becomes a punch and immediately after a kick, a series of kicks. Not happy with the uncle calls three other men (males) to help him “. I don’t pay,” the uncle loads him in the car, takes him home bleeding “, then tells him:” Now you die at home. “
“We are in Calabria, we are in the province of Cosenza. The right and necessary complaints have been made. Nothing else is needed “because for reasons of protection it is necessary to adopt an attitude of closure and confidentiality”, adds Cilento. “Physically the boy is better, he will recover – he continues -. Morally and psychologically I don’t dare to imagine how he is, maybe I don’t want to imagine it. “Among other things, the boy would have said:” I don’t want to leave home because I’m fine with my mom, it’s only dad who is violent. Mom always tells me: take strength and be brave “.
