The Polish Gay Rights Advocate Who Died on President Lech Kaczynki’s Plane

Izabela Jaruga-Nowacka, the former deputy prime minister and staunch LGBT rights advocate, is among those lost in the plane crash. Jaruga-Nowacka was one of the loud voices who rebuffed Kaczynki, when he was mayor of Warsaw, for canceling gay pride there. [PBW]
