Queers Span Long, Hard History

Gay Czech History Out In The Open

The Czech Republic’s blowing a hole in the closet.

The Prague House of Ethnic Minorities currently hosts an exhibition chronicling the nation’s queer history. The exhibit, which features pieces from antiquity through the Soviet era and into today, aims to open people’s minds about the Republic’s lavender-tinged reality.

Says Minorities Ministry spokesman Jiri Hromada: “We want to show to the public that gays and lesbians did not fall from the Mars. The older generation used to say there were no homosexuals in its youth.”

This shit’s going to give some old conservative man a stroke.
