Being gay

The State Department recently released its annual list of gay-hating nations:

1) Uganda
2) Iran
3) Egypt
4) Saudi Arabia
5) Nigeria
6) United Arab Emirates
7) Cameroon
8) Poland
9) Nepal
10) India

Homophobic violence is on the rise in many nations, not least in Poland. The story of Krystian Legierski, a Polish-born black gay activist, is a source of both inspiration and concern. Is Poland’s anti-Semitic past now being supplanted by rampant homophobia?
