CRUISING in Gay Prague
Event in the age of the smartphone app, cruising in Prague is still popular with local guys eager to meet up with tourists in all manner of locations. Always practice caution and be aware of local laws.
First of all some facts, to avoid getting into trouble. Same-sex sexual activity was decriminalized in 1962. The age of consent was equalized in 1990 (to 15 – it had previously been 18 for homosexuals). The Army doesn’t question the sexual orientation of soldiers, and allows homosexuals to serve openly. Homosexual prostitution was decriminalized in 1990.
Prague is one of the more gay-friendly countries in the European Union. This increasing tolerance is probably helped by the low levels of religious belief in the country, particularly when compared to its neighbours to the north and east, Poland and Slovakia. However as always, exercise caution when cruising for sex.
