The 5th Equality March passed through the streets of Opole (Lower Silesian Voivodeship). This year’s motto is “Opole is a home for everyone”. On this occasion, a rainbow flag was hung on the building of the Opole town hall. “It is a kind of symbol confirming that Opole is an open and tolerant city” – wrote the mayor of the city Arkadiusz Wiśniewski in social media.

The march started on Saturday at 2 pm. This year’s motto is “Opole is a home for everyone”. As the organizers emphasized, in addition to the colorful procession, a number of attractions were prepared, including the town of equality.

– The town of equality set up by us was open before the march and will be open after the march, so that interested people can use the stands. Lots of people were coming. You can see that we inspire the trust of citizens. These people were curious, not aggressive. Opole is home to everyone – said Mikołaj, one of the participants of the march, in an interview with TVN24.

“As a husband and father of two wonderful kids, today I don’t need family defenders who will threaten others to knock their teeth out and exclude them from society. I need a tolerant and open Poland that will give my children a chance to grow up with respect and freedom to explore the world, that will teach them to love and to understand, not to hide and hate otherness, and to close oneself from the world and knowledge in superstition and hypocrisy, concluded Arkadiusz Wiśniewski.
