Transvestite Elected To Italian Parliament

Luxuria Promises To Fight For Gay Rights

Italy’s first transvestite member of parliament showed up for her first day of work on Friday.

Vladimir Luxuria is the first transgender or transvestite to serve as a member of the Italian parliament.

She was elected as a member of the communist party.

A leader of Italy’s gay movement for years, Luxuria has promised to use her position to fight for the rights of gays, transsexuals and unmarried couples.

Her reception in the parliament was not particularly warm. Only the leader of the communist party greeted her with a kiss on both cheeks.
