#PolandCalmDown

It is easy to get caught up in American politics, but there is a world outside of the US and many in the LGBTQ community have it far worse. I was struck by this creative response by husbands Jakub and David who decided to respond to the Polish government’s recent decision to create “LGBT-free zones” by asking people to record themselves singing the Taylor Swift song “Calm down”.Approximately 350 videos from 140 people were submitted to the couple to show their disapproval of the Polish government and in response to the uptick in attacks and assaults targeting the Polish LGBTQ community.

At the end of the video, they explain how Poland is becoming one of the most homophobic countries in Europe. Take a listen and watch.
