Polish LGBTQ+ activists go on trial

On January 12, three LGBTQ+ activists went on trial in Poland after being arrested for showing an image of the Virgin Mary with a rainbow background during a protest against the country’s anti-LGBTQ+ regime. Elzbieta Podlesna, Anna Prus and Joanna Gzyra-Iskandar joined a peaceful demonstration in 2019 where attendees criticised the Catholic Church’s treatment of LGBTQ+ people.

According to the Daily Mail, they are on trial for desecration and offending religious sentiment. The three do not deny putting the posters of the Virgin Mary with a rainbow halo on walls and around the church, but do not admit putting stickers with the image on garbage bins and toilets.
