Architectural view on LGBT-free zones in Poland Passed

Saturday August 21, 2021 11:00 - 12:00 ORANGE room

Partner: Krystian Malada

Lecturer: Krystian Malada

(Language of the event English)
In the recent years, the situation of LGBTQAI+ community in Poland has worsened as conservative government is openly encouraging homophobic responses from the public. The lecture will talk about the spatial dimension of discrimination in Poland from a perspective of an Architect / Urban Planner. The concept of queer space and spatial presence of queer community in Poland will be discussed and juxtaposed with creation of anti-queer spaces: LGBT-free zones. The event will be closed with a Q&A session and discussion about the role of architecture in advocating for inclusion and equality.
