Don't go there
On February 7th, 2012 I sent this e-mail to the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs:
Tomorrow, the city of Saint Petersburg could pass a law that would make it illegal to speak publicly about being gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender. It would make millions of people invisible with the stroke of a pen. What is your position on this issue? Will you use the diplomatic means in your power to help stop this law?
They answered after six days in this way:
Dear Mr. Caputo,
Thank you for contacting the Office for the Relations with the Public of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Please be informed that your request has been forwarded to the relevant office within the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Office for Relations with the Public
One month has nearly passed and I am still waiting the answer by "the relevant office within the Ministry of Foreign Affairs"!
