Poland’s ruling party launches attack on LGBT community at party convention

03/11/2019 | Emerging Europe

Poland’s ruling Law and Justice Party (PiS) has launched an attack on gay rights as part of its election strategy ahead of European elections in May and national elections later in the year. The approach echoes those of the party’s 2015 election campaign, where fearmongering of foreigners was at the heart of the party’s message. PiS has never hidden the fact that it supports what it calls traditional values. Its latest attack on equal rights follows the signing, by Warsaw Mayor Rafał Trzaskowski in February, of a 12 point LGBT+ declaration which sets out the city’s policy on issues such as finding shelter for children who have been thrown out of their homes by homophobic parents, as well as bringing sex and tolerance education into the Polish capital’s schools based on World Health Organisation guidelines.
