gaybaby.jpgWhat sort of reaction do you have to this picture? The poster is part of an anti-discrimination campaign launched by Tuscany’s regional government.

It’s accompanied by the slogan “Sexual orientation is not a choice”. Thousands of these posters have been printed and will go up on city walls and public offices around the Italian region.

Some gay rights groups have welcomed the campaign - but conservative politicians have condemned it.

Is this kind of campaign going a step too far in confronting prejudice? Or are shock tactics the only way to confront prejudice? And, should we confront prejudice?
