Poland’s ruling party confronts the “LGBT dictatorship”

Poland faces an “attack on the family”, says Jaroslaw Kaczynski, chairman of the ruling Law and Justice (pis) party. In 2015 the party swept back to power by claiming it would protect the country against refugees from the Middle East. Now Mr Kaczynski has identified a new threat: gay people. The Polish religious right has long waged war on “gender ideology”, a catch-all term for feminism, gay rights and anything else that involves sex and shocks grandpa. As Poles prepare to elect their representatives to the European Parliament on May 26th, in what parties see as a rehearsal for a national parliamentary election in the autumn, pis has reviled queerness, backed by the Catholic church.
