Fashion designer Dawid Tomaszewski has for many years been committed to equality and self-determination – not just during Pride Month. “I support all actions that help bring the subject to the center of our society,” he explains in an interview.

On June 1, the annual Pride Month begins worldwide again. In commemoration of the Stonewall Uprising of 1969, many demonstrations and events are taking place this month, standing up for the rights of people of different sexual orientations and identities. Fashion designer Dawid Tomaszewski (41) has for many years been committed to equality and self-determination. In an interview, the Polish-German fashion designer talks about Pride Mode, his attitude to Pride Month and the chance to encourage others.

Diversity and tolerance are celebrated in the month of Pride. Then the rainbow colors shine on many channels and outfits. What does this symbol mean to you?

Dawid Tomaszewski: Many brands and fashion designers interpret the subject in their own way. This creates really nice designs. The goal, however, should be not to think in clichés. The LGBTQIA * scene is rather a source of inspiration. So it does not always have to be a rainbow. It has a long history and important significance for society. But I would not just reduce the fashionable form of expression to that.
