Poland: Donald Tusk promises new laws for ‘victimised’ LGBTQ+ community

During a meeting in the northwest town of Pia, Tusk said that his party has two bills prepared that would benefit LGBTQ+ Poles – one to make it easier for trans people in Poland to self-identify and a second to legally recognise same-sex civil partnerships. The Civic Platform (PO) leader’s declaration came after a secondary school senior asked the opposition leader: “What future do you intend to build with your party and coalition partners for people who identify with the acronym LGBT?” The student added that Poland’s current government “dehumanises these people“. The national-conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party, which is currently in power, has waged a harsh campaign against the LGBTQ+ community and so-called “LGBT ideology” in recent years.
