Not true at all. If there is an absolute sexual freedom somewhere, then its in the Czech Republic. We can meet anyone we want, we have gay parades, and nobody cares about what the others do in bed. We can thank the communism before, that the religion is totally meaningless in our antichrist country. In fact, the German voted yesterday (Bundestag), that adoptions are legal, but the CZ gays and lesbians who want to have children have no problems at all (I know many of them).

We only have registered partnership, not gay marraige but thats not bad at all.

In Europe, you can hardly find a country with a better life for gays or lesbians than just CZ. What a huge difference to Slovakia or Poland that is.

Edit: Turns out the UN categorizes the country that way so

Re: LGBT Rights

Taiwan I know it was being proposed for a long time over there, I'm glad it finally happened. I think Thailand would be next - if they get rid of that crazy military dictator.

Taiwan becomes first country in Asia to rule in favour of same-sex marriage

Taiwan has become the first Asian country to order its parliament to legalise same-sex marriage.
The highest court in the land has ruled that Article 972 of the Civil Code, which states that marriage is between a man and a woman, is unconstitutional.
The parliament will now be forced to amend the laws or pass new ones to formalise the decision in favour of marriage equality.

The case was brought to the court by LGBT rights campaigner Chi Chia-wei.

The long-serving gay activist attempted registering his marriage to his male partner in 2013, but was rejected.
He responded by petitioning for the case to be heard, prompting a legal struggle.
His case was helped by municipal authorities in Taipei seeking clarity over other same-sex marriage requests.
Speaking to AFP before the ruling, Chi said he was “100 percent confident” that the court would rule in favour of same-sex marriage.
He urged a quick change in the process of marrying and said same-sex couples should be allowed to marry immediately.
The Committee in Taiwan’s Legislature passed an amendment to include same-sex marriage in the Civil Code of the country on 26 December.
The passage of the amendment was the first step to legalising same-sex marriage.

The issue of same-sex marriage has been widely and hotly debated in the country over the past year.
Hundreds of people took to the streets in March to protest the proposed changes in marriage laws.

The protest which was held in Taipei was organised in association with the Rescue Taiwan Hope Alliance, a homophobic group working to prevent the legalisation of same-sex marriage.
Protesters held signs showing pro-LGBT politicians as scorpions, snakes and tarantulas.
Religious groups have also been at the forefront of opposing to the shift towards equality.
Congrats Taiwan! Finally an Asian country with equality! Hopefully this move will inspire changes in other Asian countries - Philippines, Thailand and Japan should be next I guess. And maybe People's Republic of China will get jealous of Taiwan's liberalism and someone will push for the change there too

Great to see that marriage equality finally exists on all continents

IDAHO | DAHOT International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia



It was created in 2004 to draw the attention of policymakers, opinion leaders, social movements, the public and the media to the violence and discrimination experienced by LGBTI people internationally.

In under a decade, May 17 has established itself the single most important date for LGBTI communities to mobilise on a worldwide scale.

The Day represents an annual landmark to draw the attention of decision makers, the media, the public, opinion leaders and local authorities to the alarming situation faced by lesbian, gay, bisexuals, transgender and intersex people and all those who do not conform to majority sexual and gender norms.

May 17 is now celebrated in more than 130 countries, including 37 where same-sex acts are illegal, with 1600 events reported from 1280 organizations in 2014. These mobilisations unite millions of people in support of the recognition of human rights for all, irrespective of sexual orientation or gender identity or expression.

The International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia is not one centralised campaign; rather it is a moment that everyone can take advantage of to take action.

The date of May 17th was specifically chosen to commemorate the World Health Organization’s decision in 1990 to declassify homosexuality as a mental disorder.

The International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia has received official recognition from several States, international institutions as the European Parliament, and by countless local authorities. Most United Nations agencies also mark the Day with specific events.

Re: LGBT Rights

I'm in Finland now and realised that only recently same sex marriage became legal. In fact a few weeks ago. I love this country.
