Just arrived to Warsaw and trying to find out whether you can hang out with your partner in a gay friendly environment? Get hosted by guides belonging to the Warsaw’s LGBT+ community who will introduce you to the city and its rainbow side like no one else. First you'll find out where and why “the guys” volunteered to be locked up by the “Milicja” (the police back in Communist Poland) and as we continue our walk from the meeting point, through Plac Bankowy and Saski Park you'll learn why our Pride Parade is called the Equality Parade or how far right groups and nationalists hatefully shout slogans which actually commemorate a lesbian writer (without probably realizing). Of course you will be discovering Warsaw well fed and fueled. On the way through the downtown we'll stop to let a creative bartender do the magic and serve you rainbow shots. Also, supporting the venue run by the members of the community, you will be able to try some typical polish snacks like home-made pickles. And of course we will wash them down with some fine beer. This is how you’ll make yourself ready to continue the night explorations. The tour will end in Plac Zbawiciela associated with well known hipster cafes but above it all with a symbol of a struggle for the equal rights that was constantly set on fire.
Hi! I’m Mikołaj Drózd. Meet my friend - Maciej Przygoda (also known as Miss Magic but you have to ask him why) who will be your guide on this Rainbow Tour. Here is what he says about himself: I simply LOVE Warsaw. I was born here and even though we don’t know our future, my heart will always stay here (but maybe not as literally as Chopin’s). I know how to show you the city in such a way that you’ll be looking forward to coming back here and discovering other parts of it. I’m an LGBTQ+ activist and I used to organize the Warsaw Equality Parade (I will tell you why we don’t call it Pride, yet) so I can tell you a lot about the life of LGBTQ+ people in the capital of Poland. I’ll be also more than happy to share some juicy stories about Warsaw gay-life so ask me about anything!
