Proponents of “traditional family” model march through Prague

A march in support of the “traditional family” model took place in Prague on Saturday, organized in protest against the Prague Pride festival of the LGBT community due to be held next week.

Its participants, among them politician and church dignitaries, protested against the idea of the state recognizing a family other than the traditional man and woman model.

Prague Pride is also focused on the role of the family this year, drumming up support for a bill which would give gays and lesbians the right to enter into a marriage which would put them on an equal footing with heterosexual couple, including the right to adopt children.

The bill is to be debated in the lower house in the autumn.
