The BARAKAH theatre has been repeatedly criticized and condemned for working with LGBT people. In 2019, the Małopolskie Voivodship Local Council proclaimed the entire voivodship an LGBT-free zone, and, locally, severalf municipalities and districts in Małopolska followed suit. The project is intended to express opposition to unlawful and discriminatory resolutions adopted concerning LGBT-free zones.

Under the project, seven meetings will be held in the form of debates with the LGBT community and with activists, researchers, journalists, artists, lecturers, and the public on current LGBT community problems in Polish society. The meetings will address the issues of the situation of LGBT people in Poland under the law, parents of LGBT people, LGBT in provincial areas, LGBT and the church, LGBT art, drag queens, and countering homophobia. Approximately 350 people will take part in the debates. Artistic presentations will be created by LGBT artists, and this will include a theatre premiere, exhibitions of works of artists related to the LGBT community, and workshops for 60 heterosexual persons on discrimination and the consequences of discrimination. The project will also comprise two public anti-homophobia campaigns (online and in the public sphere).

The project will be implemented in partnership with the Spółdzielnia Ogniwo, Federacja Znaki Równości, and Stowarzyszenie All in UJ. The partners will provide expert support to the project and help to increase the number of participants.
