Outrage at gay dentist 'health warning'

Equal opportunities official pledges legal action

(ANSA) - Massa, January 7 - Equal opportunity officials expressed outrage Wednesday after leaflets telling patients to take "due precautions" were plastered outside the surgery of an allegedly gay dentist in Tuscany.
    "Notice to patients," read one of the leaflets, "a gay dentist works here, you are kindly asked to be careful and take the due precautions".
    The leaflet was signed by a self-styled "organism for the protection of patients against illnesses contracted in dentists' environment".
    The leaflet named the dentist, adding patients were begged to "take the necessary precautions so as to protect their health".
    "We will hunt those responsible and take legal action," said Alessandro Bordoni, president of the local equal opportunities commission.
