This article is an attempt to show how Polish emancipation gay and lesbian movement evolves and how it affects the queer theory, which is being run within the humanities. The dramatic struggle held to make the Parade of Tolerance in June 2005 legal has stimulated once again a debate over the existence of queer people in Poland. This article also argues that ambiguous state of the movement raises a need of more social attitude to the issue. However, the discourse of antigay, homophobic rhetoric opposes any social initiatives in this matter. The author presents the wide scope of gay publications and argues with the constructivist approach of Jacek Kochanowski. Instead he offers a moderate essential attitude, called oscillating gay identity.
