Szymon Niemiec

I am a 32 years old Polish Calvinist pastor, LGBT activist and photographer. In fact I was one on the first Polish openly gay person. Everything started in '98, when I joined the first gay happening on the streets of Warsaw. In 2000 The International Lesbian & Gay Culture Network honoured me by title of ILGCN Cultural Ambassador of Poland. From 2001 to 2005 I was a President of Aboard of ILGCN-Poland. <br /><br />From 2001 to 2004 I was prime organisator of Warsaw Gay Pride Events and founder of The Equality Parade. The last 8 years I work for LGBT community in Poland. Since 2004 I work on my photography. <br /><br />Now it is hard time for LGBT persons in Poland, but we still try fight against discrimination. It is impossible to do everything whitout help. For now, I start two new project. One is my personal story book. Second is project of establishing Cultural Center fo LGBT community in Warsaw, where I live. <br /><br />If You are interested in help to my ideas, please stay in contact.
