Malgorzata Szutowicz, best known as ‘Margot’, was detained by authorities on Friday (7 August) and placed under two-months arrest for carrying out acts of “civil disobedience” against rising homophobia in Poland.

She belongs to a queer rights group called Stop Bzdorum – translated to “Stop the Nonsense” – which has gained notoriety for placing rainbow flags on statues around Warsaw, including one of Jesus Christ, an act that has been met with widespread backlash from the conservative government.
