Poland declares itself 'free of LGBT ideology.' Rest of world declares Poland ridiculous.

Government officials in at least 30 towns, villages, and regional assemblies throughout the staunchly Catholic country of Poland have declared themselves to be “free of LGBT ideology”.

Does this mean these places are “free” of LGBTQ people as well? And what exactly is the supposed “LGBT ideology,” since there are as many “ideologies” as there are LGBTQ people. Unlike Polish officials’ apparent conceptualizations, we do not constitute a monolithic community marching in lockstep.

According to the Polish LGBTQ non-profit civil rights group, The Campaign Against Homophobia (KPH), the town of Swidnik in eastern Poland was one of the first to declare that it was “free of LGBT ideology” in March.


In addition, the southern city of Lublin gave awards recently to local officials who have opposed, “LGBT ideology, which goes against the family, the nation and the Polish state.”

In fact, ruling right-wing so-called Law and Justice (PiS) party leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski condemned gay rights in April as a “threat” to the state. He has placed opposition to the highly contested topic of LGBTQ rights as a top priority in his reelection campaign scheduled for the fall in what he termed as an “ideological war.”
