The Out and Proud Diamond Group and the Peter Tatchell Foundation support the international boycott of Dolce and Gabbana and lead a protest outside their flagship London store, 6-8 Old Bond Street, London 19 March 2015. The protest is in response to the fashion designers ‘insulting slurs’ against same-sex parents and their children. Speaking to the Italian magazine Panorama, alongside his business partner, Stefano Gabbana, Domenico Dolce said children should be born to a mother and a father: “The only family is a traditional one. I’m not convinced by those I call the chemical children, synthetic babies...They are wombs for hire, semen chosen from a catalogue ... psychiatrists are not ready to confront the effects of this experimentation.” Stefano Gabbana added: “The family is not a fad.” In 2006, he told the Daily Mail: "I am opposed to the idea of a child growing up with two gay parents."Add to Lightbox Download
