Polish President Wants to Ban “Gay Propaganda”

Andrzej Duda, the President of Poland, has said in an interview with Nasz Dziennik that he would consider a ban on “gay propaganda”, similar to the discriminatory laws Russia has in place.


“I think that this kind of propaganda should not take place in schools, it has to be calmly and consistently opposed,” he told the newspaper.


“If such a law was created and would be well written, I do not exclude that I would approach it seriously.”


This interview comes after several Polish schools were set to have a “Rainbow Friday”, an educational day meant to promote LGBT+ acceptance and help prevent bullying. Most schools cancelled their Rainbow Fridays after the Polish minister of education,Anna Zalewska, warnedthat they would “face consequences” if it went ahead.
