Milicz, a town of 11,000 people in Poland, has become the smallest in the country to host an LGBTQ+ equality march. Taking place on 22 May, it marked the first to ever take place in the town.

Speaking in Milicz’s market square, Agnieszka Dziemianowicz-Bąk, a Member of the Sejm, said: “History is happening here, so remember this day.” “Change will not happen in the squares of the largest cities,” she added. “We already have Warsaw, Kraków and Wrocław, where there have been equality marches for years.

But here, in Milicz, is a real change for equality, love and acceptance.” Myślmy, a local NGO, organised the event in Milicz and stated that only 100 or so people were expected to attend, though there ended up being two to three times that number, according to newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza.
