Polish newspaper to issue 'LGBT-free zone' stickers

The Polish conservative newspaper, Gazeta Polska, has said it will distribute "LGBT-free zone" stickers with its next issue.

The stickers show a black cross superimposed on a rainbow flag.

The weekly publication - which has a circulation of around 110,000 - openly supports the conservative governing Law and Justice party (PiS).

The move was criticised by the US ambassador to Poland, who said the stickers promoted hatred.

As Warsaw's deputy Mayor said (he's going to file a complaint with the prosecutor's office, "German fascists created Jew-free zones".

1. LGBT activists need to collect them by the dozens and make banners to carry at Pride events.

Especially those who like to attend Pride events in gear that emphasizes their identity.

Irony can be a wicked tool.

2. Disgusting.

There has been a major downslide in the treat and acceptance of the GLBT community, in all corners of the world and political spectrums. It seems we make one step forward, and then we are smacked back two steps. I see progress in some traditionally homophobic societies, then homophilic ones start showing their heterosexist and homophobic asses.

3. Promoted Hatred

“The move was criticized by the US ambassador to Poland, who said the stickers promoted hatred.”
The rest of the world heard this criticism, looked at everything the President of the United States says and does, and replied “Who are you to judge?” I weep for what we have become in the eyes of the rest of the world. We have no moral ground to stand on anymore. If we do not reclaim this ground in 2020....I honestly don’t know.
