Objective of the Project

The primary goals of the project are protecting the human rights of lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender persons (hereinafter LGBT persons), preventing homophobia in the Czech society and creating an environment of dialogue between the majority population and the LGBT community. We will achieve these goals through a nationwide anti-homophobia campaign that will include an on-line campaign, „It gets better“ videos, a billboard campaign and the Prague Pride festival. The secondary goals are to protect the most vulnerable groups within the LGBT community, which in the Czech context are LGBT families. We will work with these families via support groups, we will realize an analysis of the current situation of LGBT families that will serve as a basis for policy paper on change of the Civil Code with the goal to open up marriage for everybody. This policy paper will be presented to the Governmental Council on Human Rights.
