24.10.2022 | cb — No comments

A sign of solidarity! 120,000 people marched for Ukraine at the Pride in Warsaw in June; Ukrainian LGBTIQ* led the columns. In a joint protest WarsawPride shared the streets with KyivPride.

The twelve-minute documentary “KyivPride2022: For Ukraine! For Victory!” reports on this “Kyiv” Pride, which could not take place in Ukraine this year due to the war and found a new home in Poland.
