75% of Czechs supported the legalization of same-sex marriages

In a survey in February 2018, it was found that 75% of Czechs were ready to say yes to same-sex marriage and only 19% were against it. In a similar survey in 2016, 68% said “yes” to same-sex marriages, according to The Prague Daily Monitor .

Homosexual relations in the Czech Republic have been legal since 1962. In 1990, a single age of sexual consent was adopted – 15 years. Now in the Czech Republic, people of the same sex can register partnerships. Since their legalization in 2006, 2647 couples have used this right.

Despite the tremendous support of the ideas of marriage equality in society, the Czech authorities are in no hurry with the legislative reform in this direction.

In 2018, one of the largest LGBT community in the world – gay pride – will once again be held in Prague. The “Pride Parade” has been held in Prague since 2011. The main goal is to draw public attention to the need to recognize the key human rights, such as freedom of expression and freedom of choice of sexual orientation.
