The president of Poland Andrzej Duda has pledged to ban LGBT education in schools, as well as blocking the legalisation of same-sex marriage and adoption.
Duda ramped up his homophobic rhetoric to jump-start his re-election campaign, which had been interrupted by to coronavirus.
In an apparent pitch to his conservative base, he signed a ‘family values’ declaration that vows to protect children from LGBT ideology and prohibit the teaching of LGBT inclusion by public institutions.
“Parents are responsible for the sexual education of their children. It is not possible for any institutions to interfere in the way parents raise their children,” he said.
His proposals include the preservation of special benefit schemes for families and pensioners, alongside the promise that same-sex couples will never be allowed to marry or adopt children.
Remember that a third of Poland is declared as 'LGBT-free zone' and Pride Parades need a police strong presence to be protected.
