· The European Court of Human Rights has dismissed the complaint of a French man suffering from hermaphroditism who demanded that a notation of "neutral" or "intersex" gender be entered on his birth certificate.

The European Commission has been conducting a special "infringement procedure" against Poland since July 2021. EU officials claimed that Poland was discriminating against people with homosexual tendencies and experiencing "gender identity" disorders. Evidence of this discrimination was to be found in alleged "LGBT-free zones." This is an obvious lie by the LGBT activists themselves, who, by the way, openly boasted on social media that thanks to them the Commission is screening Poland.
· Bulgaria's Supreme Court has ruled that "gender reassignment" through legal proceedings is inadmissible under Bulgaria's current state of the law.
· The Supreme Court stressed that "gender is recognized at birth and defines a person until death."
· The European Commission has drafted an EU regulation that would make it compulsory for EU states to recognize each other's decisions establishing parenthood.
· As a result, Poland would be obliged to recognize the legal force of a document certifying same-sex parenthood.
· The EU regulations are directly applicable - their provisions do not require implementation into the national legal order.
- In early 2023. The Grand Chamber of the Strasbourg Court found a violation of the right to respect for private and family life of a group of same-sex couples due to the inability to formalize their relationship.

· The Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg has ruled that Council of Europe states have an obligation "to legally recognize and protect same-sex unions."
· The Grand Chamber upheld a contested 2021 ECHR ruling, which indicated that denying same-sex couples the opportunity to enter into "marriage," or at least a formal union, would violate Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
