According to Polskie Radio, Biedron said that the attack took place in a cafe where he was relaxing with a group of friends:

An aggressive man insulted us, using homophobic statements. He began to choke one of my friends and punched him in the face. When he recognized me he spat in my face, raised his fists and and kicked me in the stomach.

The demonstration brought thousands marching through the streets of the capital in central Warsaw:

Their main goal was to demand parliament begins work on passing legislation for civil partnerships.
