CRACOW, POLAND – 2021/08/14: Members of Polish LGBTQ community are seen walking under a giant rainbow flag during the march.
Annual Equality March also known as ‘Pride Parade’. This year’s march attracted more participants than in previous years, while the number of counter-protesters decreased. In Poland, a fierce public debate is taking place between tolerance supporters, with center or left-wing views, and conservative, nationalist, Catholic right-wing circles, which are expressing their aversion to the LGBT community in an increasingly ruthless manner. Opponents of the LGBT community accuse it of trying to carry out a moral revolution. Those in favor of tolerance recall that discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation is a feature of totalitarian societies. (Photo by Filip Radwanski/SOPA Images/LightRocket via Getty Images)
