Poland: Warsaw Equality Parade

The beatroot posts Joseph Vogt's pictures from the Equality Parade that took place in Warsaw on June 10, and writes about the event that drew from 2,000 to 10,000 people: “Unlike similar marches in Poznan and Krakow which ended in bloody violence, this demonstration was peaceful and pleasant.” Becca Steel of Boo posts 90 pictures from the parade and writes: “The police were on hand in enormous numbers and created a barrier between us and the rather straggly group of counter-protestors, who incidentally seemed to be protesting against paedophilia […] (nobody's told them homosexuality isn't the same thing as paedophilia you see, poor ignorant bunch).” Aaron Fowles of p3 writes about Abigail, an American expat who attended the parade: “She kept pace with the parade despite having one prosthetic leg. She held onto my arms at times for support, but she marched right along with the rest of us.”
