Gay Initiative ends its activities in Czech Republic
The Gay Initiative has ended its activities in the Czech Republic saying its main objectives had been achieved. The civic association in support of gays and lesbians was set up in 1990, shortly after the fall of communism, to fight prejudices against gays and lobby for equal rights and opportunities for gays and lesbians. The association's chairman Jiri Hromada said at his last news conference on Wednesday that he was happy to say that most of the association's goals had been achieved and that the public's attitude towards gays had changed radically for the better. The Czech Republic was the first post-communist state to pass a law enabling same-sex registered partnerships.
