The eight Prague Pride festival of LGBT culture culminated on Saturday with a traditional parade through the city centre. An estimated 40,000 people took part in the procession, which set off from Wenceslas Square and ended at Prague’s Letná plain, where a concert is held.
The main focus of this year’s LGBT festival was on a bill, due to be debated in Parliament in the autumn, that would allow gays and lesbians to enter into regular marriages, which would give them the same rights as heterosexuals. At present they can only enter into so-called registered partnerships.
