Mon 9 Dec 2013 In: International News

Rome's main shopping street has been lit up with rainbow lights, which were chosen by the local council as a stand against homophobia. The lights run for more than a kilometre of the Via del Corso. The council decided on the move following the suicide of a gay teenager.
