Join us for an inspiring panel discussion on the fight for LGBTI+ rights in Eastern Europe featuring very special guests, human rights defenders Vitalina Koval and Elżbieta Podleśna.

These brave women are campaigning for LGBTI+ rights in Poland and Ukraine and have both suffered personal attacks as a result. We will hear how they and others in their community continue their courageous action in the face of hatred, attacks and even criminal charges.

Don’t miss the chance to hear from two extraordinary LGBTI+ human rights defenders making positive changes in their countries.

This event will be interpreted by Max Marchewicz (they/them).



Elżbieta faces two years in prison for owning a poster of the Virgin Mary with a rainbow halo on it. She stands against hate. She stands against discrimination. Will you stand with her?
