LGBTQIA hate from Poland as the country’s president, Andrzej Duda, vowed to ban the teaching of LGBTQIA issues in Poland’s schools. As reported by Reuters, this is said to be an apparent pitch to his conservative base prior to what is expected to be a tight race for the June 28 presidential election.

Duda is an ally of the right-wing nationalist Law and Justice Party (PiS), which considers LGBTQIA “ideology” as a foreign introduction that undermines the country’s traditional values. He will be facing liberal Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski of the main centre-right opposition Civic Platform (PO) party.

“Parents are responsible for the sexual education of their children,” Duda was quoted as saying to supporters. “It is not possible for any institutions to interfere in the way parents raise their children.”

Cementing his anti-LGBTQIA stance, Duda also said he won’t allow LGBTQIA couples to marry or adopt children.

As FYI: Trzaskowski himself is not completely pro-LGBTQIA; favoring civil partnerships for members of the LGBTQIA community, but not supportive of allowing LGBTQIA people to adopt.
