Some parts of the British LGBT community, such as the organization Out and Proud, have argued that, in Thursday’s Brexit referendum, voters should choose to leave the European Union. They suggest that could be good for LGBT rights, pointing to the limits on LGBT rights in some other E.U. member states, such as Poland, and suggesting that these countries’ domestic politics could somehow threaten British LGBT people. These claims have become part of the rhetoric of the pro-Brexit campaign.
