  1. Yet another positive news from Poland, well done to her.

  2. While this is good news, we have to remember that Poland is still widely regarded as one of the most homophobic places in all of Europe to live. Polls conducted by many different organisations have shown this.

      I agree I’ve heard the transphobia there, along with some other Eastern European countries, is horrific, she has a lot of attitudes to change.

  3. Now I’m prud of beeing polish and living in Krakow ;) Good job Polnad !

  4. I would disagree. Poland is still a very backward country with an appaling record on gay rights. I know people who have recently came over here from Poland and they haven’t seen any progress.

      I do think it’s step in the right direction. We have to start somewhere, that said I’ve heard of the same horror stories……

  5. This is excellent news. I wonder how long it will be before we see the same here…..should I hold my breath?

    And good luck Anna, I wish you all the best in your political futue

  6. Good luck to her.

    It’s nice to hear good news. Like many Catholic countries where people are turning their backs on homophobia in spite of the Pope’s rantings Poland is making progress. Hopefully the Eastern Orthodox Christians will eventually follow suit.

  8. Congratulations to the Palikot Movement and their wonderful first election results! Must have been SO good to vote for a party in Poland that doesn’t the Vatican permeating it!

    1. I am happy about her, too. I voted for Palikot’s party myself.

      1. Wonderful Ryk! Well done! A party for ALL Polish People!

        1. Greetings. Palikot movement singnals a deep change in our society. It gained very strong support with the youngest voters (actually winning with the 18-26 age voters) . The prospects for more friendly Poland looks good. People are really fed up with conservative and catholic rethorics of our old political establishment. Palikot inspired many many people and now is the “hottest” party in Poland. :)

          Cheers

  9. Good for her!We had a transgender MP even here in Italy but this actually didn’t improve the situation about gay rights that much…I just hope it’ll work for Poland!

    Georgina Beyer became the first MP who had the same medical condition in 1999 in New Zealand, then there was Vladimir Luxuria in Italy, why does it matter, just they are women, surgery or not, let’s try to get Pink News and other news sites to say they are just women, Wikipedia always outs people
