Gay Star News reports:
Czech Republic just introduced a draft law to legalize same-sex marriage today (22 June). According to iDNES, Lucie Zachariáš, the lawyer representing the campaign for marriage equality in Czech Republic said on the government’s decision: “We are happy that the government has consistently spoken about the proposal to change the Civil Code and promote marriage for gays and lesbians. It is practically the whole of Western Europe, and we have the chance to be the first post-communist country to take it.”
The Czech Republic currently offers civil unions and would be the 17th European Union member nation to provide full marriage equality.
Czech government decided today to support an equal marriage bill. The document will be discussed by the Parliament now. This is a great news for #LGBT in the Czech Republic!
