Nursery school in Italy cancels Father’s Day not to discriminate gay parents

A kindergarten in Milan (Italy) decided to abolish Father’s Day. The move is linked to the desire not to upset children with gay or lesbian parents, as reported by La Repubblica.

The nursery school didn’t make any official comment. In a letter published in Wednesday’s edition of Corriere della Sera, some of the parents of the nursery school said the decision was taken last year not to prepare gifts for mother’s day or father’s day in respect to families in which a parent had died or was absent for another reason, ANSA reports.
