International Court Rules In Favor Of Gay Polish Man

Poland  The Polish government is most definitely not known for their pro-gay stances, so it's encouraging to see The European Court of Human Rights step in and protect the rights of people in a country where the majority of its citizens disapprove of homosexuality. This is what the court ruled:

"Poland may not discriminate against homosexual couples, in spite of
a clause in the its constitution stating that marriage is “a union of a
man and a woman”, the European Court of Human Rights ruled in

The court found, in a unanimous ruling released on
Monday, in favour of Piotr Kozak, whose partner died in 1998, and who
had his request to continue lining in their municipal flat in the
western city of Szczecin turned down, in spite of a provision in Polish
law allowing a “person who has lived in de facto cohabitation with the
tenant” to succeed to the tenancy."
