    an lgbt ideology-free zone (polish: strefa wolna od ideologii lgbt[5]) is a region declared to be free of "lgbt ideology"[6] as the result of an act by a polish municipality[1][7] powiat (county),[8] or voivodeship (province).[9]

    while unenforceable and considered primarily symbolic, activists say the declared zones represent an attempt to stigmatize and exclude members of the lgbt community.[7][9] as of january 2020, around 80 different lgbt ideology-free zone declarations have been made in poland, including five voivodeships in the south-east and central parts of the country:[1][2][4][8] małopolskie, podkarpackie, Świętokrzyskie, and lubelskie.[2]
