Just last week, Activist and Former Polish President Lech Walesa said gays in parliament should have to sit in the back, or behind a wall, and claimed that 95% of Poles agreed with him. Not so fast, as Pink News reports:
The new poll carried out by the Homo Homini research institute found that only 31% of Polish people agreed with Lech Walesa’s remarks, as opposed to the 95%, which he claimed. The survey found that 59% of Poles did not agree with Walesa’s statement, with 10% saying they did not know.
This is especially surprising given the low level of support marriage equality received in Poland in a recent poll. Surprising but gratifying.
