Między drzewami, między słowami – o parku inaczej


Among trees (and between words), in the bushes, hidden from the heteronormative part of the society, it is where hiding spaces function. The paper describes park from the perspective of subversion of place made by the gay communities in the 1980s and 1990s. Therefore, a park becomes a heterotopia, an alternative place for queers and faggots excluded by the general society. The style that emerged during pickets (kamp), along with whole system of poses, symbols, codes and language of hiding (sociolect) translates into the experience of park users as a multi-dimensional space which combines the conscious with the hidden, heterosexual with non-heterosexual, real and imagined.
