For the third year in a row, Poland is in last place in the European Union in terms of its treatment of LGBTI people, according to ILGA-Europe's Rainbow Europe 2022. The most friendly country in Europe for the LGBTI community is Malta.
The situation of LGBTI people in each country is assessed in percentage terms, on a scale from 0 percent (which hypothetically means huge violations in the field of LGBTI rights and discrimination) to 100 percent (respect for human rights, absolute equality).
"Poland has reached a homophobic bottom over the last six years lowering its position in the ILGA-Europe ranking. In 2020, we fell to the last position among EU countries, which we have consistently maintained. Poland is the country whose legislation treats LGBT+ people the worst in the European Union, placing us right next to Russia. We must immediately change the course taken by the authorities by consistently putting social pressure on the Polish government," Campaign Against Homophobia said in a comment.
