I’m on the fence about putting my thoughts on the internet about this event since when it happened; I was a holiday, and I didn’t see any news which is a wrong move. When I came back, I was watching an interview with Antoni Porowski (from queer eye) while he was talking about this new cookbook Antoni in the Kitchen when the interviewer asked him how he felt about what happened during the first pride ever in Poland.
I wish I were prepared for what he was about to say, and I don’t think I will ever be. He said that protesters were throwing flour, eggs and rocks at the pride parade and that right there made me sad because I believe that the LGBTQ+ community needs to support each other so when any country gets hit with LGBTQ+ related crime because that’s purely what it is a crime, the whole community is hit.
The first thought that popped into my head was, I don’t think Poland is a member of the EU, but upon future research I found out that Poland has been a member of the European Parliament since 2011. So, here is my question, what laws these the EU have to protect the LGBTQ+ community or if it does have any regulations at all that her members need to follow in order to protect the LGBTQ+ community? In my opinion, what happened in this event are unacceptable in this day and age and action needs to be taken. I will leave the full article from The Guardian below and please tell me what you think in the comments below.
