Photographer's Note

I have a lot of photos of London but for a moment there will be no more from me here. I find it boring showing many pictures from the same place. Day after day the same church interior or the museum objects - are not for me.

So now something very different. Yesterday I went to see Warsaw Pride Parade. It was a great day, so full of colour and fun. There were mainly young people but I saw also some a bit elder, like in the Workshop photos.

The ruling party and the church are homophobic but Warsaw President supports the movement and such events can be organized. And this years event was held jointly with the KyivPride march.

About the situation in Poland you can read here:

Poland is the worst country in the European Union for LGBT people, according to the annual Rainbow Map produced by ILGA-Europe, a Brussels-based NGO that advocates for the rights of LGBT people. In its annual report for Poland, ILGA-Europe noted hateful rhetoric from the government and the church against LGBT people, as well as violence against equality marches.

The leader of the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party, Jarosław Kaczyński, declared that Poland must defend children and normal families from the imported LGBT movement, which threatens our identity, our nation, its continued existence, and therefore the Polish state. The Archishop of Krakw, Marek Jędraszewski, called LGBT ideology a rainbow plague and likened it to Bolshevism and Nazism.
