Video: Italian lawmakers support LGBT inclusion in antidiscrimination law by sucking face in parliament

This is totally why we should have more LGBT-friendly legislators in the Nebraska Unicameral. From the video's description:
     A group of Italian lawmakers interrupted a parliamentary debate on Friday to engage in a same-sex kissing demonstration in support of expanding the country's anti-discrimination law to include the LGBT community. According to The Local, the new measure, which expands a 1993 law to ban "crimes motivated by homophobia or transphobia," passed in the Chamber of Deputies in a 354-79 vote, but is not expected to make it through the Senate of the Republic, generally considered the parliament's "upper house."
     But dozens of members of the M5S party — short for MoVimento 5 Stelle, or Five Star MoVement — cut discussion short on Friday when they stood up and began kissing each other, while others held up signs calling for "more rights" for LGBT Italians.
