Free Tour Discover Rainbow Warsaw 🌈

I simply LOVE Warsaw. I was born here and even though we don’t know our future, my heart will always stay here (but maybe not as literally as Chopin’s). I know how to show you the city in such a way that you’ll be looking forward to coming back here and discovering other parts of it. I’m an LGBT+ activist and I used to organize the Warsaw Equality Parade (I will tell you why we don’t call it Pride, yet) so I can tell you a lot about the life of LGBTQ+ people in the capital of Poland. I’ll be also more than happy to share some juicy stories about Warsaw gay-life so ask me about anything!

Tour description

Just arrived in Warsaw and trying to find out whether you can hang out with your partner in a gay friendly environment? Get hosted by a guide belonging to Warsaw’s LGBT+ community who will introduce you to the city and its rainbow side like no one else.

First, you'll find out where and what was the brights side to be locked up by the “Milicja” (the police back in Communist Poland) and as we continue our walk from the meeting point, through Plac Bankowy and Saski Park you'll learn why Warsaw Pride is called the Equality Parade or how far right groups and nationalists hatefully shout slogans which commemorate a lesbian writer (without probably realizing).

The tour will end in Plac Trzech Krzyży that used to be one of the hottest points for the gay community in the comunism.

Of course, you’ll get from me a list of places worth visiting, eg. restaurants, bars and clubs. Follow QUEERSZAWA on Instagram to find the best events in Warsaw. 

So don’t hesitate any longer and book some rainbow time with me 🌈

This tour was without a doubt the highlight of my trip to Warsaw! Maciej is so knowledgeable and passionate about educating people both about history and current situation. I learned so much about queer history and had a ton of fun doing it. Maciej also recommended some great places to check out after the tour. Thank you so much!

Maciek hat uns einen authentischen Einblick in die queere Szene Warschaus gegeben: Er hat voll viel Insider-Wissen und kennt alle relevanten Orte. Dabei hat er auch historische Entwicklungen und über das alltägliche Leben queerer Menschen in der Stadt erzählt. Besonders wichtig fand ich, dass er auch mehrere Geschichten von lesbischen Frauen erzählt hat. Sehr interessant und Maciek ist super sympathisch!
