The real gay mafia. (Crime).

In the mob, if you kiss a guy on the cheek, it means you're "family." But if family thinks you kiss guys on the lips, it means you're dead.

"That is the role," Anthony Capo, a former mafia hit man turned government informant, told a federal court in Manhattan on April 30--noting that to "be a homosexual" would get you whacked.

Capo is part of the New Jersey-based DeCavalcantes family--whose members believe themselves to be the real-life inspiration behind the hit TV show The Sopranos.

Testifying against three of his former "family" members, Capo described how in 1992 he shot New Jersey mafia boss John D'Amato four times in the backseat of a car after his girlfriend ratted about D'Amato's secret gay life in New York City's sex clubs.

"Nobody's going to respect us if we have a gay homosexual boss sitting down discussing business," Capo said. A 1991 video played in court showed D'Amato getting a peck on the cheek from late New York mafia kingpin John Gotti, who apparently did not know D'Amato's secrets.
