Polish teacher Maria Kistowska felt a burst of pride when her school came top in a new LGBTQ+ inclusion ranking that seeks to challenge the nationalist ruling party's curbs on gay and transgender rights.

"This sends out the message that we're LGBTQ+ allies, and it tells kids (that) there's a place where you can feel safe," Kistowska, 37, who teaches English at a school in the western city of Poznan, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.
