Polish couple visit ‘LGBTQ+ free zones’ to give away rainbow masks

May 27, 2020

Do you remember Polish gay couple Jakub and David who gave away rainbow masks on the streets of Poland? Well, they did it again but this time decided to visit ‘LGBTQ+ free zones’ in Poland to hand out hundreds of rainbow masks to the people they met.

Jakub an David faced a few threats, some people were a bit nasty, but as they say – ‘Watching so many people with rainbow masks on their faces in these areas was absolutely worth it!’

Jakub and David visited three ‘LGBTQ+ free zones’ in East Poland – small towns called Mordy, Trzebieszów and Biała Podlaska, giving away over 200 rainbow masks in each spot. Watching their film you can see that it wasn’t very safe and anything could happen. Some people didn’t like rainbow masks, one man threatened to punch their faces if they didn’t leave, but people’s reactions were mostly very positive.

Giving away rainbow masks is Jakub’s and David’s way to fight against Covid-19 and homophobia in their country.
