How do rainbow families in Poland function? Do children of same-sex couples have a chance to get identity documents that accurately represent their circumstances? What impact can EU law have on LGBTI families’ lives? Will same-sex unions in Poland be recognized thanks to the European Court of Human Rights? The conference „Court in the colors of the rainbow – equal treatment of LGBTI people in the courtroom,” organized by the Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights and the Campaign Against Homophobia, shall provide answers to these concerns as well as many more.
Conference will discuss the standards that should apply to LGBTI litigation, the psychological features of non-heteronormative people’s participation in proceedings as well as how civil law can protect LGBTI persons who have been victims of hate crimes from homophobic hate speech, as well as what to look for when providing legal assistance to LGBTI people who have been victims of hate crimes. The issue of how the present metric gender reconciliation technique should be changed will also be raised. Lasty the conference will go into whether or not local governments can make resolutions „opposing LGBT ideology.”
