A homosexual rights group is hoping to persuade MPs to vote for registered partnerships by means of a comic book, Tereza Kodickova of the Gay and Lesbian League said on Friday. The comic features a cactus and a bonsai tree living together, and is intended to promote gay rights in a light-hearted way.
The lower house is due to vote on the issue later this month. Last year a bill on registered partnerships was defeated by just one vote.
