100 places in Poland declared themselves as “LGBT-free zones”. Queers are not welcome there. In 2015 the PiS party came with nearly 40% of the votes into government for whom homo-and transphobia is a fundamental part of their ideology.

Expanding on the topic of the previous online discussion where we shared the ways in which we currently collectively take care of each other, we want to let our imagination lose and explore wild ideas that might be too out there for our current world. No idea is too wild! Perhaps you’ve read something that poked your interest? You’ve watched a film or listened to music that inspired you? Let’s explore what makes our imagination run!
In these difficult times it is more important than ever to dream big and different and to support each other in our wildest dreams!
