Lukasz Palucki startet einen neuen Versuch, im homophoben Polen daran zu erinnern, dass Polen im 17. Jahrhundert ein schwules Staatsoberhaupt hatte:
In my country homosexuality was never a crime in civil law. From 1493 when King Olbracht I has changed the law ( he cancel power of the church courts) homosexuality was legalized. Nobody says that gay is ok, but from this time there was no punishment for gays. During next centuries homosexuality was still legal, before and even after WW II Poland was the only comunistis country in the world where homosexuality was not a crime. I wish remind people that tolerance for gays have woods in polish tradition.
This is why i organise DAYS OF THE KING WLADYSLAW III. Wladyslaw was never marrying. Contemporary 15th century – Jan Dlugosz – Polish historians regarded him as homosexual.
