Meanwhile, In Poland This Week


A transsexual woman and a gay man have taken their seats in Poland’s newly-elected parliament – historic firsts reflecting profound social changes in the traditionally Roman Catholic country.

Anna Grodzka, who was born a man, shook hands with several men and women as she entered the assembly hall. She took a seat next to Robert Biedron, a leading gay rightsactivist who is the first openly gay person to be elected to the Polish parliament.
