Recent Elections in Poland Make History

By  Rachel Roth

Robert Beedron has become Poland’s first openly gay Member of Parliament (MP). According to THENews.PL, the co-founder of the organization, Campaign Against Homophobia, will take up one of the seats for the city of Gdynia, Northern Poland. Beedron will join recently elected Anna Gzodzka—the first transgender MP—in representing the liberal, anti-clerical Palikot Movement. Beedron told a reporter from THENews.PL that the historic elections are “a sign that we are a different society now, open and tolerant.”
