A colorful crowd has gone to the streets of Słubice (Lubuskie Voivodeship) and is heading towards Frankfurt on the Oder. They are participants in the international Equality March. It is a form of showing support for the LGBTQIA + community and opposition to homophobia.
This is the second edition of the Polish-German Equality March. Its participants first met in Słubice, Plac Bohaterów (Lubuskie Province), from where they set off together at noon. The crowd crossed the streets of Słubice to reach the border bridge. There, the organizers want to make their demands, and then go to the German side, to Frankfurt (Oder).
Organizers: the march is a form of support and opposition
The organizers of the event emphasize that the march is a form of support and showing unity with the LGBTQIA + community. – As the organizers say, it is also a form of opposition to homophobic violence and that is why they gathered here in such a large crowd – reports TVN24 reporter Nadia Jóźwiak, who is on the spot.
The march will end at the Bridge Square in Frankfurt (Oder). Nearly 1,000 people took part in last year’s Freedom March.
