A police spokesman said about 2,000 people set off on the "Equality Parade" gay rights march through the center of the Polish capital.


A small group of skinheads threw eggs at the marchers but were prevented from approaching them by police.


Many gays say they face discrimination and open hostility in the Catholic country.
