Hundreds demand safety for LGBT+ community in Prague march

Hundreds of people took place in a march in Prague on Friday evening calling for freedom and safety for all, including members of the LGBT+ community. The event was organised following the recent murder of two young gay men in the Slovak capital Bratislava. Speakers at Friday’s demonstration said that their deaths should be a spark for change, with members of sexual minorities facing discrimination and a lack of understanding on a daily basis.

The crowd walked behind a banner reading We are all Teplaren!, referencing the Bratislava bar by which the killings took place.
