Yes, this is a big support for LGBT community.  Also there you can have a contact with psychologist. Poland has has a big problem with tolerance recently. 

Countries much worse than Poland always sort these during events. In the Russia World Cup there wasn't any talk about homophobia, or any other issue with Russia. Even during the Berlin 1936 the Nazis removed all anti-Semitic signage in the city because they knew foreign journalists would be there. Any problem with LGBT will be pushed under the carpet while the games are in town

As now we come across the world
To share these Games of old
Let all the flags of every land
In brotherhood unfold

This support is prepared by a large city by local authorities. Important domestic politicians say LGBT it's an ideology. However, people affected by the problem of homelessness may benefit from help here after coming out. Fortunately, it is better here than in Russia or Muslim countries. However, much remains to be done, unfortunately there is no chance of marital equality. There is no chance of a Gender Correction Act. There is no chance of partnerships. And people are scared of LGBT people. There is no chance of banning conversion therapy.   https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bbc.com/news/amp/world-europe-53039864

Big support among the youths - who happen to be the least reliable group of voters. As long as Civic Platform is too scared to upset the conservatives nothing will change - and that's gonna take a loooong time. Besides, EG will happen before the next elections so obviously nobody will give a damn about LGBT. Poland ain't USA or Netherlands after all.

Maybe someday teenager will have easier life, can be who they want to be and live in more tolerant country. Where love is a love, can marry someone who they loved and they won't be afraid of homophopic country.  Probably Poland need more than 20 years to do that.

20 years at the very least. Even the hard-left got upset recently their press speaker focuses too much on the ideological stuff and removed her from office. You could have had hope with Biedron but he got what he wanted - a fat salary as MEP - and doesn't seem to care much about Polish internal politics anymore. He's gone very quiet during the pandemic period compared to his rants before he got elected to European Parliament :coffee:

Ugh, I was pretty pleased with the sports program up to now. Glad to see shooting back once more.

Do we really need the European Games? Would a better option not be to build on the European Championships which took place in Berlin and Glasgow in 2018?

That is the “great debate” at present, but it’s not like the European Championships haven’t been without their struggles either. No swimming in 2022, and it did seem like there wasn’t many federations interested in joining when organizers went looking for some sports to add to the program. 
 

Personally, I’ve enjoyed both editions of the European Games. Of course, they have a plethora of problems too.
