– We demand full rights for each and every one of us. We demand changes that cost nothing and provide a lot. We will march for them until Our Era comes – this is how the Opole Rainbow Association encouraged people to participate in the equality march.

– There are a lot of bitter words here from the gathered people, because they believe that it should have been the same for everyone a long time ago, regardless of their orientation. And unfortunately this is still the case – reports Tomasz Kanik, TVN24 reporter.

– We have been in a relationship for six years. And here in Poland we have no rights. Civil partnerships have been needed “since yesterday,” said one of the march participants. When asked why it is still necessary to wait for the legalization of unions, she said that it was apparently “not a priority.” – I don't think this is the first priority on the to-do list. There are certain demands that are implemented earlier due to… elections, which are approaching. I hope that something will finally change, because we are fed up, she added.

According to the organizers' announcements, the march route includes the following streets: Ozimska, Władysława Reymonta, Stefana Żeromskiego, roundabout Alfonsa Zgrzenioka, Oleska, Bohaterów Monte Cassino, Katowicka, Tadeusza Kościuszki, Władysława Reymonta, Ozimska and the square John Paul II.
