Noah, Gays and the Rainbow, a sculpture reveals the hypocrisy surrounding LGBT rights.

Investigation by Karol Sienkiewicz


Standing at the very heart of Warsaw, Julita Wójcik’s sculpture, The Rainbow, is an inoffensive work of art designed to bring joy to passers-by and to be completely apolitical. Yet for two years following its installation in 2013 it prompted violent passions. It was burned down several times, only to be reconstructed by its defenders. The authorities’ lack of response to these acts of vandalism is indicative of the worrying situation of the LGBT community in today’s Poland.
