Support for marriage equality in the Czech Republic is soaring, with around two-thirds of the public backing same-sex marriage, a new poll published Thursday showed. In results that researchers branded as “encouraging”, a MEDIAN agency survey showed that the majority of Czech citizens support LGBT+ rights. This comes after a bill to legalise same-marriage was introduced to the Chamber of Deputies – the country’s lower house – in 2018. Despite attempts to stonewall the legislation, the Government announced its support for the bill. Although, it has since been pelted with postponements since a vote was scheduled to take place. Deliberations, at times lasting seven hours, have stalled the bill and it has not been discussed since early 2019.
