The largest gay pride parade in central and eastern Europe will bring thousands of people to the streets of Warsaw Saturday, at a time when the LGBTQ rights movement in Poland is targeted by hate speech and a government campaign depicting it as a threat to families and society.In recent months, officials from the right-wing ruling party have been portraying the LGBTQ rights movement, particularly calls for sex education stressing tolerance, as a threat to families and children.Ruling party leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski recently called the LGBTQ rights movement a foreign import that threatens the nation's identity.LGBTQ rights became a key topic of public debate earlier this year when Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski, from the centrist opposition party Civic Platform, issued an LGBTQ rights declaration setting out the city's commitment to try to help find shelter for gay young people rejected by their parents.
