A gay couple is making Polish TV history in an includive new advert for Durex.

YouTubers Jakub and Dawid Mycek-Kwiecinski appear alongside two mix-sex couples in the new 30-second TV spot for the condom brand, believed to be the first TV ad in Poland to feature a real-life gay couple.

The couple told Gay Star News that as well as airing across major TV channels in Poland, the ad will also air in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Lithuania.

The positive piece of LGBTQ TV representation comes after far-right activists were reported to be creating so-called 'LGBTQ-free' zones across Poland last year.
