POLAND: Gay Mayor Announces Presidential Bid

Gay Star News reports:

Poland’s first openly gay mayor, might just become the country’s first ever openly gay president. Robert Biedroń is throwing his hat in the presidential campaign ahead of a national vote in 2020. Even though the election is a few years away, recent polls show one in every four Poles is willing to vote for Biedroń. This is a remarkable achievement in a country where between 50 and 70% of people do not approve of same-sex relationships. Announcing his candidacy now allows him plenty of time to campaign and build his support even further.

Nearly 90% of Poles are Catholic. Biedron is an atheist.
