Google's machine translation is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.
Do not translate text that appears unreliable or low-quality. If possible, verify the text with references provided in the foreign-language article.
An open lesbian, from the late 1980s to 2000 Imma Battaglia was a member of the Centre of Gay Culture "Mario Mieli" as well as its president for more than 5 years. As such she organised the first Gay Pride in Italy (Rome, 1994), and promoted Rome as a possible host for the 2000 World Gay Pride; her efforts were successful and the city was assigned the organisation of such event which created trouble in the Italian politics because of the contemporaneity with the Great Jubilee of the Roman Catholic Church.
