Rome, Feb 25 (RIA Novosti) A 45-year-old Italian gay man is planning to undergo a sex change operation and become a nun, Italian news agency ANSA said Wednesday.
The man, whose name has not been revealed, lives in a small town near Rome but intends to leave his job in May and travel to a country in northern Europe to undergo the operation.

“I talked about my wish with a priest but I was misunderstood. A conversation with a bishop was even worse,” the man told the Italian news agency.

A spokesman for CasaPound, a social justice organization, Massimo Carletti said: “All men and women should be equal and have equal opportunities.”

“He is determined to (achieve his dream) and we will help him,” Carletti said.
