Equality march and the city
The procession runs along Modrzejewska, Świdnicka, Piłsudskiego, Kołłątaja and Piotra Skargi streets, through Plac Dominikański and along Oławska and Kazimierza Wielki streets. Then March turns around and, through Święty Mikołaj, Kazimierza Wielki and Zamkowa streets, it will return to Wolnoci Square. The procession is expected to end before 6 p.m. 19.
Although the culmination part of the event is the parade itself, the town of Equality has been working on Wolnoci Square since the morning. The organizers reported their demands on social media. They noted, “We demand an immediate halt to hate propaganda in public places.” They added that they also wanted to edit the art. 119 of the Penal Code and the addition of homophobia, transphobia and hate speech towards people LGBT+ as grounds for discrimination. They also call for streamlined legal and medical procedures in the gender recognition process for transgender people, as well as reliable sex education in school curricula.
