The conservative Polish weekly Gazeta Polska distributed 'LGBT-Free Zone' stickers with its weekly edition on Wednesday, as evident at kiosks in Warsaw.
The sticker shows the LGBT rainbow flag superimposed by a black cross and a slogan that reads "LGBT-free zone."
The move has reportedly been slammed by the LGBT community amid ongoing tensions with the Catholic Church supported by Poland's ruling Law and Justice Party.
"First, a group is selected and marked and then false and untruthful attributes are assigned to them, such as that we are pedophiles or want to kidnap small children," said the President of Equality Parade foundation Julia Maciocha who added that the stickers were aimed at alienating the LGBT community members.
The stickers were not welcomed by certain Warsaw residents who either saw them as a way of segregating between different segments of the Polish society.
