Mr Walesa – famous for appearing in the hit group as a heavily moustachioed macho biker in tight black leather trousers and chains – was criticised for promoting a “propaganda of hate against a sexual minority”, after the camp Polish political icon said LGBT people had no right to a prominent role in politics.
The singer and dancer – Poland’s first democratic-era disco dancing president – is credited with single-handedly bringing down the Communist system by organising a series of crippling mass nationwide striking of poses spelling out the word YMCA in his native Poland in the 1970s.
