Hi everybody,

A few weeks ago in Croatia an initiative called ''In the name of the family'' launched a petition for a referendum to amend the Croatian Constitution so that it would define marriage as a union between a man and a woman. To achieve this, they had to collect ca. 450,000 signatures (10% of the electorate). They have collected more than 700,000...

Gay people have never had it easy in my country, which is mostly Catholic and extremely homophobic. Now I'm afraid they don't stand a chance. Although this is only an online petition and it won't affect the referendum at all, please sign and share this to show the Croatian LGBTQ community that there are still people in this world who believe in love, tolerance and human rights.

Thank you!
