“ONE OF A KIND” DAY OF EVENTS TO DRAW FRESH ATTENTION TO MARRIAGE EQUALITY BILL

 |

An international conference on marriage equality will take place at the Czech Senate on Thursday, followed by a demonstration in support of the issue nearby. Organisers We Are Fair! are hoping those events will focus fresh attention on a bill, submitted well over a year ago, that would make the Czech Republic the first ex-Eastern Bloc state to permit same-sex marriage. I discussed the reasons the legislation has yet to make it through the first reading with Adéla Horáková, a lawyer with We Are Fair! “So we have people who are in favour, many MPs – and I believe enough of them to make this go to the second round [of voting] – are in favour of the bill. “But there is not this strong sense of ‘OK, let’s get this done – this move this forward’, this sort of strong leadership and a decisiveness to allow this to be voted on.”
