While gay activists in Poland commemorate the International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO), the country’s minister of education, is seeking a police investigation against gay groups.

Wojciech Wierzejski, a member of the Polish ruling coalition partner, Giertych’s League of Polish Families, who govern along with the anti gay Law and Justice Party, has been the subject of student demonstrations and petitions against him.

He is blaming it all on gay groups, claiming the “homos” are conspiring against him, the Financial Times reports.

Mr Wierzejski is reported to believe that gay people want to implement “deviant” ideas in schools, and vows that as long as he is minister, “there will be no homosexual propaganda in schools.”

A postcards project has been taking place in Poland today for IDAHO, gay groups are sending postcards which show lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in various every day situations.
