My History

At 2019 about 60 municipalities in Poland declared themselves free of LGBT ideology, pledging to refrain from encouraging tolerance of gay people. During city-council politicians voted in favor of homophobic statements where they declare to fight with “LGBT-ideology” and protect “tradition and Christianity”.
To create attention to homophobic resolutions I created a sign and I traveled across Poland to signpost proud Polish towns that declared as so called LGBT-free zones.
By this action I created a certain attention to new homophobic bills and national discussion about Polish homophobia.

Polish state-propaganda media accused me of spreading lies about Poland and Primie Minister Morawiecki accused me of creating “deep fake” (sic!).
