An 'F-U' to far right vandals

'Unbreakable' LGBT rainbow unveiled

Posted

Gay rights groups in Poland have unveiled a new and "unbreakable" rainbow installation in Warsaw to replace the original one that suffered repeated attacks from far-Right groups reports Matthew Day from Warsaw, Poland.

The new rainbow, which lights up a busy intersection in the city, is formed by a water hologram, with light bouncing off a curtain of vapor.

As light and water cannot be defaced in the same way as a solid structure, its creators hope it will not suffer the fate of its predecessor and will become “an unbreakable symbol of love, peace, LGBT rights and equality.”

The old rainbow, made of artificial flowers, was taken down in 2015 after it was set on fire in series of up to seven attacks that became a symbol of the battle for gay rights in Poland.
