The European Games 2023 are set to take place in Małopolska, one of the so-called "LGBT free-zones" in Poland.
So-called “LGBT-free zones” are part of a two-year campaign against LGBT+ people in Poland. The resolution has been signed by over 100 cities and regions in Poland, openly discriminating LGBT+ people. It has led to a terrifying rise in hate speech and hate crimes against LGBT+ in the country.
Małopolska has signed this homophobic resolution in April 2019.
Now they've been selected to be the host of the European Games in 2023.
We want to make sure that all athletes, visitors, and Polish LGBT+ people before, during, and after the Games are feeling safe and respected.
