Poland to consider outright ban on LGBT+ Pride after bill backed by more than 200,000 homophobes

Poland’s ugly war against LGBT+ people continues with a horrifying new bill that would ban Pride parades throughout the country. The proposed law, entitled “Stop LGBT”, was submitted to parliament on Monday (November 9) by the lobby group Life and Family Foundation. If passed, it would ban Pride parades as well as any other public gatherings that “promote” queer identities. The citizen’s legislative initiative – a type of bill that can be submitted by the public so long as it receives 100,000 signatures – also seeks to criminalise any promotion of “sex as an entity independent of biological conditions” and any legal solutions “aimed at privileging same-sex relationships”.
