Several Polish opposition lawmakers colour-coordinated their outfits to form a rainbow at President Andrzej Duda’s swearing-in ceremony to show solidarity with the LGBTQ community that he actively campaigned against.
While many boycotted the ceremony on Thursday altogether, several MPs were seen wearing rainbow coloured face masks along with the coordinated outfits.
Duda had drawn criticism after he argued that the people from the queer community are ”not people” and that their ideologies were “destructive”.
“We wanted to remind President Andrzej Duda that … in the constitution there is a guarantee of equality for all,” Left MP Anna Maria Zukowska told Reuters.
