This time, Poland created an “unbreakable” rainbow installation to celebrate the beginning of Pride month in Warsaw


This year, a record 12 Pride marches are taking place in Poland – one of the rare countries in the European Union, which has still been restricting gay marriage and civil partnerships for same-sex couples. Among the hosting cities for Pride celebrations will be those, which had never been holding a rainbow procession before. So, it should be pointed out that 2018 will become a remarkable year for LGBT community in Poland. Furthermore, on June 8, 2018 Poland has inaugurated its new, “unbreakable” rainbow installation to coincide with the beginning of the Pride month celebration. The installation’s unveiling came the night before the annual Warsaw Equality Parade, which took place on June 9, 2018 in the capital of the country. This parade was first launched in 2001, and it remains to be the biggest march in support of LGBT rights throughout Poland. As for the installation, it comprises a water and light monument in a form of a rainbow, which is an international symbol of LGBT community. This beautiful construction has been placed in the same square, where the previous rainbow monument was situated. It should be remembered that in 2012, another rainbow monument, totally made of flowers, was installed in Warsaw, although it had been completely removed in 2015 due to the repetitive acts of vandalism. Makers of the new installation took this into account and made the new construction “unbreakable”. It will be lighted up during all important LGBT events.
