Is there a rainbow curtain?

Location: Pride House – Small hall

Žena v bílém roláku, přes kterou je promítlá duha

Friends of the student queer group Charlie will try to find an answer to the question: “Is there a rainbow curtain in Europe?”

The status and rights of LGBT+ people in Europe vary greatly from country to country. And the former Eastern Bloc countries are still lagging behind in this area. To this day, it seems that even after 33 long years, the Iron Curtain still exists in different forms, and one of them is rainbow colored. Why is the situation so different across Europe? And does it always remain the same, or is it changing over time? How do LGBT+ people from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Russia and other European countries who are directly affected view the situation in other countries? All this and much more will be heard at the panel debate of the association Charlie titled “Is there a rainbow curtain?”

The debate will be moderated by Petra Kalenská, human rights activist and university lecturer.
