Poland’s first openly gay politician founded a new progressive party on Sunday ahead of European and Polish elections this year. Robert Biedron, who named the party “Wiosna” (“Spring”), said he wanted to challenge Poland’s divisive politics and win seats from Poland’s ruling right-wing Law and Justice (PiS) party at European elections in May. “There is no room for hate, we have reached the limit,” he said in front of thousands of supporters in the capital, Warsaw. “We need a spring that will renew this gloomy landscape,” he added.
