Guess who’s coming to dinner? LGBTQ couple could win Christian Democrats’ marriage contest

In celebration of “National Marriage Week”, the Christian Democrats have organised a contest inviting married couples to post captioned photos of themselves on the party’s Facebook page. First prize is dinner with party chairman Pavel Bělobrádek. Over a third of contestants are gay or lesbian couples, who hope to convince the party to reverse its opposition to same-sex marriage.
