Polish Football Fans Want Gay Section


Gay football fans are requesting separate seating to protect themselves from the rowdy and sometimes aggressive crowd.

A gay group of the Polish national team, known as Teczowa Trybuna 2012 (Rainbow Stand 2012), said its members fear the other fans will be too aggressive during the 2012 European Championships, according to the Associated Press.

While some agree with the idea of separation, others like Gregory Czarnecki of Poland's Campaign Against Homophobia believe very few gay and lesbian fans would choose to be segregated.

"I understand their initiative, and what they are trying to do," Czarnecki told the Associated Press. "But the message might be counterproductive in Poland," he said. "I don't think many people would be brave enough to not only come out, but also to sit in this section."
