In May 2017 CVVM included a block of questions related to tolerance of Czech society towards homosexual oriented men and women into its regular survey Our Society. At the same time, there were questions focused on the attitudes of citizens to whether homosexual people should have certain rights: right to enter into a registered partnership, marry, adopt children from "institutions" - so-called children's homes, and adopt the children of their partner with whom they live and whose upbringing. The highest support has gained right to enter into a registered partnership while 76 % of respondents stated that homosexuals should have this right. We also asked whether respondents have some homosexual people among their friends or acquaintances. According to our research, homosexual friends have 37 % of Czech citizens. On the other hand, 49 % of respondents said they have none.
