There are over 50 000 rainbow families in Poland, but they do not have any legal protection. The legal vacuum related to marital inequality affects not only LGBT+ people who are already in relationship, but also their children, parents, siblings and young LGBT+ people who are just entering adulthood. Despite the unfavorable attitude of the rulers in Poland, there is a growing acceptance of same-sex relationships (more than two-thirds of Poles believe that same-sex couples raising a child together are a family), but there are no legal regulations recognizing LGBT + families.
The project addresses the problem of marital inequality in Poland.

As part of the project, a nationwide social campaign dedicated to marital equality will be conducted, which will reach 1 million recipients. There will be a plan of cooperation with new political partners, a manual for politicians, and a set of tips on how to talk to potential allies. The project will also create a nationwide network of 20 ambassadors-advocates for marital equality, in which local groups and organizations will develop communication and advocacy skills.

As a result, a new positive narrative will be permanently introduced into the public debate, leading to an increase in support for marital equality, a network of spokesmen and female advocates will develop, and new political allies will emerge on the introduction of same-sex marriage in Poland. The campaign conducted as part of the project will reach 1 million recipients. 20 people form local LGBT+ organisations will be trained in advocacy activities aimed at introducing marital equality in Poland.
