Want to spend a nice afternoon with young queer people? Are you planning to go to university in the fall and would like to know more about the college life and “how to school”? Do you want to learn about the life of the LGBT+ students? How they spend their free time, what are their interests what the like to do for fun? Charlie, the queer association of the Charles university invites you to their picnic in the Pride Village at the Střelecký Island. Come to chat, listen and make new friends. Fun and games can be expected. Bring some food and drink if you want and don´t forget a blanket.

Charlie offers an open platform for self-realization, meetings, entertainment and common problem solving. The association focuses mainly on queer people and their right not to be discriminated based on their sexual orientation or identity. Furthermore, Charlie aims to help the whole world of academia and all society in general to live happier and higher quality life by promoting human rights, mutual respect and acceptance of diversity.
