Poland’s highest court has ruled that it is in line with the country’s constitution to recognise foreign same-sex marriages. Poland has become increasingly hostile towards the queer community in recent years, but on Thursday (3 November), the country’s highest court – the Supreme Administrative Court of the Republic of Poland – handed down a rare judgement in favour of LGBTQ+ rights. Despite huge public support for the legal recognition of same-sex couples, Poland remains one of six EU countries where same-sex couples are unable to marry or register civil unions.
