WARSAW, Poland — Authorities from the city of Krakow have come to be the first to add financial aid for an LGBT refuge in a state where the neighborhood has been confronted by the authorities.
The shelter provides temporary lodging and mental counseling for up to 12 homeless LGBT men and women. It’s been conducted by a charitable foundation, The Voice of the Heart, because 2016, however, has struggled financially.
The town is providing some 184,000 zlotys ($50,000) to provide stability and an overall increase to the shelter during the following couple of decades.
Nationwide expressions of support for LGBT communities also have been coming, however.
City cash is likewise to be provided soon to a refuge at the capital, Warsaw, in which Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski signed a statement of support to the LGBT community in 2019. That announcement drew a backlash from the conservative authorities.
