SINCE THE INTRODUCTION OF THE EQUAL MARRIAGE BILL

Help us tear down Europe's rainbow curtain

Join us with bringing about a change for LGBT+ people in the Czech Republic and be part of a historic moment. Currently, Czech gay and lesbian couples are legally allowed to enter into registered partnerships only. That is, however, not equivalent to getting married.

Registered partnerships make LGBT+ people second-class citizens. Thus, same-sex parents and their children deserve dignity and legal protection. Altogether, there are more than 100 ways in which registered partnerships differ from marriages.

Nothing less than fair

Your support will help us come into the world of marriage equality where we belong. We want Czech policymakers to treat LGBT+ people fairly and recognize their love, rights and responsibilities. Over the last 13 years, the Czech Parliament has failed to find the time to amend the existing legislation on registered partnerships. As a result, we have started campaigning across the country to increase public support for the marriage equality of LGBT+ people.

After one year, the Czech Republic’s Equal Marriage Bill still waiting for government approval

Together we can

Introduced in the Czech Parliament back in June 2018, the Equal Marriage Bill has been finally put to its historic first vote, to start the long legistlative process, in April 2021 - five months before the Parliament elections. If our campaign is to be successful, the Equal Marriage Bill has to be introduced once again by our new Parliament. It is imperative that our voices be taken seriously and treated fairly. Our campaign must be visible in cities, towns and villages; in urban and rural areas; and in work environments and public services.
