LGBT+ Activist Sanok
Feminist Emergency Service: urgent grant for the organization of the first equality march and after party in Sanok
About the group
LGBT+ Activist Sanok is a queer, informal activist group that has been operating in Sanok (in the southeast of Poland) since 2018. In 2022, they decided to organize the first equality march in Sanok.
About the action
Sanok is a small town in the conservative Podkarpacie region – it will be the first event of this type that is extremely needed by the LGBT+ community
In addition to the march itself, the group planned an event for LGBT+ persons, but it turned out that all places in Sanok except one club refused to rent space for this event. The Feminist Emergency Grant will be used to co-finance the lease, without which the after party – important for building a queer community in Sanok – will not take place.
Grant amount: PLN 3,000
