A Bill called "Stop LGBT" is about to be debated in Polish Parliament. Yes, you read that right - there is no subtlety here.

The ‘Stop LGBT’ bill would ban Pride marches and any other public gatherings that “promote” non-heterosexual sexual orientations, and diverse gender identities.

The Polish government’s normalisation of hateful rhetoric has created an environment where people feel empowered to spew bigotry. If this Bill becomes law, it will put the rights of LGBTQIA+ people in Poland at greater risk than ever.

This proposal is part of a wider crackdown on LGBTQIA+ rights across Poland. Elżbieta, Anna and Joanna have spent many years fighting for equality in Poland - they face up to 2 years in prison, accused of ‘offending religious beliefs’ for distributing posters of the Virgin Mary with a rainbow halo. 

Sadly, their case is another example of the constant harassment activists and human rights defenders face in Poland for carrying out peaceful activism.But the world is on their side. Hundreds of thousands of people have urged the Polish Prosecutor General to drop the charges. Elżbieta, Anna and Joanna won’t stand for this harassment. And neither will we.  

Sign the petition calling on the Polish government to stop this crackdown on LGBTQIA+ people now - including rejecting the hateful 'Stop LGBT' bill, and dropping the case against Elzbieta, Anna and Joanna.
