Polish “LGBT-Free Zone” Policies Overturned After EU Pulls Funding

A region in southern Poland has revoked an anti-LGBT resolution under the threat of losing European Union funding. The regional assembly of the region voted in a special session on Wednesday to revoke the resolution, which was first passed in 2019 by dozens of Polish municipalities. It is the first time a region in Poland has abandoned the declaration of being an “LGBT-free zones”. Members of Poland’s ruling Law and Justice party had supported the resolutions, which local communities said were intended to protect families based on unions of a man and a woman. But the appeal marked a reversal for the conservative government after the EU put on hold millions of euros of funding to the regions.
