Poland’s Commissioner for Human Rights, Prof. Adam Bodnar, has called out the government for increasing homophobic sentiments through remarks which are on the margins of hate speech and has challenged resolutions on "LGBT ideology” to courts. He will discuss the increasingly hostile environment for sexual minorities in Poland and what measures can be taken to protect LGBTQ rights. Prof. Bodnar will also elaborate on how the pressure on LGBT rights leads to the growing emancipation of the LGBT community and to understanding by courts what their role is in safeguarding the rights of vulnerable minorities.
