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.
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.

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. Therefore, the bill did not manage to pass the entire legislative process.
The path of the bill began again with the newly elected Parliament in June 2022, when the new Equal Marriage Bill was introduced by legislators from across the political spectrum. 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.
Our campaign is more than giving away posters and stickers. It is about getting people talking. It includes a national conversation. And it is your donations that make the conversation possible. Support our campaign – make a one-off or a regular donation – AND HELP CZECHS ACHIEVE MARRIAGE EQUALITY.
We have brought together a coalition of non-profit organizations and people who share the idea that the opportunity to get married should be fair and equal. Together, we challenge the status quo. We cannot achieve the change alone. Members of the Coalition are: Amnesty International Czech Republic, Logos Czech Republic, Mezipatra, PROUD, Prague Pride and Queer Geography.
