Life isn’t so sweet for LGBT+ people in Poland - queer people here have to fight for basic rights every single day. They face discrimination, marginalisation, and a difficult legal status that is far from equal.

The #DonutGiveUp challenge was created to raise awareness & donations to help combat this. Try to eat a donut without licking your lips in support of the Polish LGBT+ community and donate to the Equaversity Foundation!
