Three Polish regions voted on Monday to scrap resolutions that declared them free of “LGBT ideology”. It comes after the European Commission threatened to pull funding. The resolutions were first passed in 2019, with local authorities viewing campaigns for gay rights as an attack on “traditional”, Catholic values. Almost 100 other regions passed similar anti-LGBT resolutions that year, drawing ire from the EU, which said it violated discrimination laws. The European Commission later urged five large regions to scrap them. If they were kept in place, the commission threatened to block up to €126m ($147m) in funding for their local governments.
In response, Podkarpackie, Lubelskie and Malopolskie cancelled their declarations on Monday, following the lead of another region, Swietokrzyskie, which did so last week.
